Meaning enjoyment, comfort or ease, the word ‘raku’ comes from the name of the lavish 16th-century Japanese palace – the Jurakudai – where this very particular style of ceramics first became known. Raku is a distinctive firing / glazing technique and a process by which Japanese traditionally made their potteries.
Each tile is expertly hand glazed, hand fired and rapidly cooled, using the same traditional techniques that have been followed for centuries.
The result? Intense colours and unpredictable patterns. A variation in any single factor will affect the outcome, opening up a world of creative possibilities.
Available in a wide range of tonalities, the tiles in this collection bring life, luster and a lavish individuality to any interior.
