Raku pottery by Philpot, KY artist Thomas Porter. Thomas work is influenced by his early trips to Japan, China and Korea, where he first learned about Raku, a technique where clay is glazed, fired in a kiln at a lower temperature than usual and then cooled very quickly in either combustible materials or water leaving the pieces with rich velvet shades and the signature crackle. Porter said this technique was currently his favorite as well as his most popularly bought pieces.
