Glaze Your Own Raku Lantern
All items must be pre-ordered by April 17th for the discounted prices. Limited GYO items available for sale at the door the day of the event for an extra $5 charge.
Come out and be a part of a live raku firing! This event is open to the public for participation or just to observe. No experience necessary. Preregister below for a lantern of your choice then come to Althouse Pottery on Saturday April 25 / 26 to glaze your piece using a variety of glaze colors. When you're done sit back and watch the firing process (about 45 minutes long) from loading into the kiln, firing to temperature, and reducing into a metal trashcan of sawdust and paper. A few minutes after that we will take it out and squelch it in water. You can then scrub any black soot off, dry it, seal it and take it home. Please allow approx. to 2 hours or so for the total process. It's a great learning experience for the whole family!
After preordering a lantern, you will receive an email directing you to Signup Genius for you to sign up for a time slot to come glaze and fire your lantern. Sign up ASAP as spots will fill up fast and space in the kiln is limited.
Lantern cut out options: Sail boat, Heart, Star, Flower, Dragonfly, Sailboat, Turtle, Bear
