Little Blue Budgie

Paul Jenkins Raku

Paul Jenkins was born in the West Midlands, England in 1949.

Paul first started his career in art the early 70's sculpting in wood and then found himself drawn to sculpting in clay and wax. He then went on to study ceramics at Dudley College of Art.

The word Raku is variously translated in the West as meaning 'pleasure, enjoyment, contentment and felicity.

The Raku process was introduced to the West by Bernard Leach in the 1920's. In the early 1960's Paul Soldner experimented with the style in the USA and was credited with discovering the post firing reduction in combustible materials that distinguishes Western Raku from Japanese Raku. Post firing reduction accentuates the crazing on the surface and creates the lustrous finishes that are the trademark of modern Raku pottery.
