Raku has been Stephen Murfitt's main passion for the last forty years. He is a recognized authority on the process and continues to explore its infinite possibilities from his studio in Cambridgeshire.
A very welcome addition to the sources of information about Raku making and how it has influenced current makers is the book by Stephen Murfitt – Contemporary Raku. Not only does it give you an insight into the influences of makers but goes into some detail about the actual production methods. The book is well illustrated with examples of work. For too long Raku has been overlooked, but it is now experiencing a resurgence. A very good reference source for any studio.
