Raku ware was developed in sixteen-century Japan as a low fired ceramic ware. The Japanese word "Raku" means enjoyment and pleasure also at ease. Each pece is unique owing to the firing method and postfiring reduction. The piece is taken red hot from the kiln and placed in the reduction chambers with various combustible material.
