Ceramic Pieces

Ceramics: How can you identify a ceramic piece that has been Raku fired?

In other words, how can you tell Raku fired piece from a traditional ceramic?

A combination of things

Look for a lot of crazing - small cracks - could be accented in black.- Some pieced are pulled from thr kiln and rapidly cooled then reduced in a trash bucket filled with burnable material that the hot piece is put in.

A test that can damage the piece is to see if it will hold water - a lot of raku can't It wasn't fired high enough
