A Ceramics Studio on Wheels
Like most great ideas, Mobile Raku was born out of necessity. While teaching classes at schools and institutions, I had a following of students, “regulars”, who were eager to fire at every chance they got. They would bribe me to do extra firings before or after class.
A Full Studio & Kiln On Wheels
Eventually, the class became non-stop firings. I had to take some of the firings out of class so that there was still studio time. I’m not one to disappoint my students so I developed “Mobile Raku”. I assembled a studio and kiln that I could bring wherever it was needed; full teaching facilities, complete with a teacher, at your doorstep….lessons and firings to suit an individual’s or group’s needs. Mobile Raku is a ceramics studio on wheels.
Raku For Everyone, Everywhere
I can travel to any location in the continental U.S. The mobile studio has everything that is necessary to conduct a raku workshop. Mobile Raku allows me to teach at all levels, from children to adults, as well as a wide variety of skill levels.
"BEST DAY EVER" is the collective mantra we chant when Brett brings his Mobile Raku workshop to our facility at the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg, VA (6 times already!).
Our students spend months creating work for his workshops and the anticipation is palpable!
Brett is a master of the raku process and he consistently delivers fabulous results. As we look to our future Night firing workshop, I'm confident we will be chanting BEST NIGHT EVER!
