What Others Are Saying

"500 Raku is a delight. I can imagine how hard it was to select the 500 pieces out of more the 1,200 submissions. The more I explore the book, the more I get an appreciation for the vast imaginative, creative and technical diversity that this technique has evolved into from the traditional tea sets. The book has everything traditional and contemporary designed teapots and teacups, sculptures varied from classical to whimsical styles, conceptual pieces, wall decorations, abstract work and highly detailed ones. I actually put the book in a place I can browse it daily, because every time I open it, I find new treasures. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for all art lovers, ceramic lovers, and ceramic artists who would like to get inspired." - Moshe Mikanovsky

"Who knew that Raku could produce the diversity of styles and beauty that are contained in the pages of this book. You will find delicate beauty, humorous whimsy, bold design and serene simplicity on these pages. For some reason this '500' book has grabbed me a bit more than some of the titles.What's a bowl and vessel lover to do but continue to look through the pages of this book -- and dream!" - Books by the Willow Tree

"I like raku. Pretty much all of it. Until I saw this new Lark book, 500 Raku, I had no idea the variety of looks that raku artists were achieving. Naked raku, sprayed glazes, alcohol reductions, ferric chloride, underglazed, wheel-thrown, press-molded ... and such beautiful beautiful stuff! This is an inspiration book. How can I pick favorites among so much fabulous work? This book is a visual feast." - Mixed Media Artist
