Raku In The Classroom

Help me give my students a microwave, glass kiln, and glaze for an opportunity to experience raku firing their pottery.

My Project

In a public school setting in California, it can be challenging to bring raku into the classroom. We have high winds and fire danger, and there is no safe place on campus to have a raku kiln.

A microwave, microwave kiln, and raku glazes will help create a safe space to create raku pottery.

There will be minimal fire and embers using a microwave kiln, and we can use the classroom patio to fire the pottery. I want to give the students an original experience and knowledge to share in future endeavors.
