You can take an arrangement with us throughout the year, where you determine the program yourself.
For more information, click here. 

Last year, we experimented with many different variations on the technique pitfire.

You will get acquainted during this workshop with:

  • The technique "pitfire"

  • Several variants that we are going to apply, so that there will be created many different and surprising results



There will be the whole day firing pitfire in several large and small fires.
In between there is an opportunity to get acquainted with our new "Rakuvaria-extrem" clay: you will make something, that even after a few hours is baked in raku kilns or fire.
This workshop is especially interesting for those who like to experiment, because the possibilities are endless...

More information on the basic technique pitfire can be found in our book Rakuvaria2, chapter 27.

Information regarding the above workshops:

You come with biscuit fired work to us..
Every different technique will be thoroughly explained and you will be able to put these in practise afterwards.
Learning of the pitfire technique is most important on a workshop day and not the firing of as many works as possible

L'espace intérieur utilisable mesure 7 cm de diametre, et 3 cm de hauteur.

Nous avons ajouté quelque chose à l'article, à savoir une base solide de briques isolantes.

Les fours sont idéals pour faire des petits bijoux et par exemple pour faire emeaux des tests:

Thermomètre laser jusqu'à 850 degrés Celsius

Voulez-vous avoir plus de contrôle sur de la formation de craquelures à la cuisson du raku? Ensuite, ce thermomètre laser est un outil idéal. 

Vous prenez un pièce du four chaud. Vous mesurez la température avec le thermomètre laser et attendez que la température ait chuté à une certaine valeur.
Maintenant, vous le placez dans la sciure de bois et vous êtes assuré de craquelures pour le résultat final.

Egalement idéal avec, par exemple, les techniques d' enfumage, marquage avec du crin de cheval, etc.

Un tableau des températures est fourni avec cet article, avec des indications indiquant à quelles températures la formation de craquelures, les possibilités de marquage, etc.( écrit en anglais et néerlandais ).
