Raku-yaki (楽焼), or Raku ware is a type of Japanese pottery that is traditionally and primarily used in the Japanese tea ceremony in Japan, most often in the form of tea bowls.  Raku can be learned by those experienced in pottery or new to the medium and is a very experiential firing that takes all the participants working together to help create the art and the communal experience.
