The origins of raku can be traced back hundreds of years to Japan, where it was used as the traditional method of creating clay bowls for the tea ceremony. Over the years potters have embraced and adapted the methods, celebrating the remarkable but unpredictable results achieved using raku techniques. The author, who has specialised in raku for over twenty years, considers the origins of raku before offering over 300 glaze recipes. A selection of other potters also share their ideas, and with one hundred photographs of raku-fired pieces, 'Fired Up With Raku' offers inspiration to all potters. AUTHOR: Irene Poulton was born in the UK but has lived in Australia for nearly thirty years. She studied ceramics at Carine College of TAFE and was hooked when attending a raku workshop by Jeff Mincham. Irene has concentrated on raku for over twenty years and has gained a BA in Visual Arts from the Edith Cowan University in Perth. She exhibits her work in both Australia and the USA. She represented Western Australia at the prestigious Biennale Dell'Arte Contemporanea Internazionale in Florence in 2003. 100 colour photos
