UTPB Associate Professor of Art Chris Stanley throws sawdust on pottery that is waiting to be buried in the dirt as part of a process called Raku ware Tuesday afternoon at UTPB. The traditional Raku ware process was created in Japan and involves removing pieces while still red hot from a kiln and placing in the open air to cool. Western practice of the process is slightly modified and adds combustible material to the pottery while allowing to cool which can create a variety of effects and colors in the glaze.
