Workshops with Rae Holton
Raku Firing -Raku is a firing technique founded in Japan and was once used in making ceremonial tea
cups. Since, artists have modernized this slam dunk form of firing clay to produce striking pieces of art.
This style of firing can produce a rainbow of iridescent and metallic lusters, classic white crackle with
black carbon highlights, or satin color flashes. Instant gratification with amazing and spectacular results
Horse Hair Primitive Firing - This technique is best achieved on a white clay body and like the Sagar
firing, uses no glaze. It involves the use of horse hair and feathers to decorate your piece. When laid
upon the hot pot, the media smokes the piece and produces beautiful designs. Usually black on white.

Sculpt Your Life - This workshop is focused on using clay to create your reality. Based on principles
in The Secret and my own experiences I will take you through a journey of self-exploration and
