Le Raku

When it first appeared in France around 1880, this Japanese word was translated phonetically as “RAKOU”.

It designates a ceramic whose birth is linked to the development of a globally aesthetic universe, evoked by the word “WABI”: the beauty of imperfection, of the incomplete, of the irregular and of failure. Fired around 1000°, the piece undergoes a violent thermal shock, and is then smoked. Each piece is therefore completely unique.
