The history of Raku dates as far back as the 16th century, and it was said that the special type of earthenware was first invented for a tea ceremony in Kyoto. Indeed Raku means ‘pleasure’ or ‘enjoyment.’ Traditional Raku pottery is also known to have been used by the Zen Buddhist masters who liked its simple naturalness. Traditionally the pieces are handmade not thrown.
