ByTriskel @ Raku Workshop

In Harelbeke, we attended an enameling session developed in 14th century Japan, called raku.
The session has been supervised by Wally Asselberghs.

The enameled pieces emerging from an oven at 780°C and are quickly covered with natural flammable materials like compacted sawdust in order to prevent combustion by limiting the supply of oxygen in contact with molten enamel. It is during this phase appear the more or less metallic color, cracks and the effect of smoking out of the ground left rough that form the main characteristics of this type of ceramic.
After cooling the parts are cleaned with an abrasive to remove any residual soot and ash.

Before viewing the photos, I suggest you visit the website of ByTriskel.
