Raku is a ceramic firing technique developed in 16th century Japan. The meaning of the ideogram raku-yaki emphasises the serendipity of the firing process. The glazed sculptures were fired at 950 degrees, and the thermal shock produced the cracks in a completely random way. The object is then smoked, which blackens and enhances these accidents.
If there is one animal that everyone agrees on, it is the panda: its round body, its small ears and its smoky eyes make it immediately appealing. Revered in China, it carries many positive symbols.
