Raku Pottery

All the pieces are handmade and hand painted before being fired at 950 deg cel.
They are then placed in smouldering sawdust which blackens the crazes. This process is largely uncontrolled and the slight imperfections that appear in the glaze make each piece unique.

This project employs up to 30 people (mostly women & single mothers) in a area of high unemployment, providing ongoing training, access to medical facilities and assistance with loans. They also mentor employees in life and financial skills. More than half the employees have been working with them for 10 years. The families of longer serving employees have been assisted in funeral and ongoing living expenses.
