I still haven't yet learned much about raku or even watched a complete raku firing. And although this is not the time to pursue this interest, today is definitely a day to read up here and there online. Maybe it's more escapism, but I'm choosing to think otherwise.
Whatever it's called, I'm surfing the net for a little while reading up on raku.
I just found a pottery blog site in which we're told they're making plans to change their site from this current host to one with its own domain. This one is still worth checking out, though. They have some great shots of the firing process and give you a good example of what raku firing is all about. I hope they do well with their site and will look forward to seeing more photos in the future.
