Raku Ceramics – It’s on Fire!

Raku ceramics

Sweetwater Art Center and Fern Hollow Nature Center are partnering to offer a raku ceramic firing workshop!

Participants will remove their red-hot glowing pieces directly from a contained fire using tongs and place them in a vessel of combustible organic materials that immediately ignite from the heat of the pottery. This process creates surfaces ranging from black to turquoise to intense red/bronze and beautiful white crackle.

This workshop is open to those with their own completed pieces to fire, as well as those who just want to try this unique hands-on firing process (a set of vases are available to glaze and fire for $10).

Event held at Fern Hollow Nature Center: 1901 Glen Mitchell Rd, Sewickley, PA 15143
Additional details and registration:
Pre-registration required. Contact Erin at Sweetwater with questions: or 412-741-4405 Ext. 100
