500 Raku: Bold Explorations of a Dynamic Ceramics Technique (500 Series) Reviews
I purchased this for my daughter who is a wonderful artist. She loves doing cersmics, and Racku in particular. She loved this book and it stays by her bed side table so she can read it before going to sleep at night. It helps her dream up new ideas for her own creations in Raku.
this book opens your eyes to how far you can push the art of raku. i highly recommend this book to anyone who is a experienced raku artist as well as the beginner. i was blown away at what people have done with the art. for the money, this is a great book. there is however, no glazes documented. i would suggest buying a raku recipe book (fired up with raku) if you want to try and figure out what glazes they used. if you are having questions on a glazes or technique feel free to email me.

I am a potter and sculptor. I have about 12 of the 500 series books. The 500 Raku I especially like.... and it's not just because I happen to have a piece in this addition ( mask on page 226 ) but because I have been rakuing for about 8 years now, and I am very inspired by the beautiful photos. Speaking of photos.... the Lark publicating Company has very high standards for submitting photos for consideration for submission to their books. This is why they have such beautiful photos of their art work in their books. If you love pottery , if you love raku, you will love this book.
Another hit for Lark. A number of my fellow potter friends are featured and the reproduction of the pictures is spot on. A very inspiring volume. Love picking it up and being inspired.
Nice book --interesting content
I love this book. The price is wonderful, the pictures are marvelous, colors magnificent and paper strong. Should be in every clay lover's library.
a rich collection that expanded my ideas about raku. Not a how to book, more of a gallery of visual feasting.
With so many artists represented, there is quite a lot of interesting work to see. Some bad stuff, but mostly very creative.
