Raku, pit and barrel firing are three of the most popular firing techniques in ceramics. Accessible to anyone involved in this expressive medium, the unifying theme of these three techniques is the ability to work directly with the fire to achieve both quick and unique results not available with more conventional firing techniques.

Raku, Pit & Barrel: Firing Techniques is a collection of carefully selected feature articles from Ceramics Monthly and Pottery Making Illustrated, the two most widely read ceramics arts publications in the world. This handbook is divided into three sections covering each of these popular topics. Within each section you’ll discover some of the most beautiful work now being produced in this field, as well as extensive how-to techniques and step-by-step instructions to help you duplicate the processes in your own studio.
