Raku is one of many low-fired ceramic traditions around the world. Today, the term "raku" is used across America and Europe to denote a kind of low-fired pottery whose technology and aesthetic were inspired by traditional Japanese Raku ware. 'Raku: A Legacy of Japanese Tea Ceramics' is a catalogue of works in the Raku Museum in Kyoto. The collection contains many of the quintessential masterworks of the over 430-year Raku legacy. Additional works from other collections, mostly those designated as Important Cultural Properties, are included for reference.
