An exhibition, workshop, lecture and tea ceremony presenting the origins and contemporary practice of raku ceramics. Raku ceramics have been at the center of two artistic revolutions—the birth of the traditional Tea Ceremony in 16th-century Japan and the Clay Revolution in Southern California in the 1950s. In both instances, raku became a liberating technique and philosophy that stimulated new ways of creating and experiencing clay. Raku continues to lend itself to invention and experimentation. Constantly evolving, its spectrum of expression has expanded to include political and social statements as well as achieving a balance of simplicity and sophistication that transcends function.
