Would you think that I am just blowing smoke to tell you that you can do Raku in a blow-away kiln that weighs less than your average feline friend? In less time than it takes to pop a CD into your audio system, you can be cruising at 15 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm talking in 30 seconds or less! 


Well, here's the gig! Right in front of your very eyes you can download all the necessary info, including cartoon illustrations, instructions, and an international suppliers list. You can have your own feather-weight portable Raku kiln in no time flat! Snoop Doggy Dogg would still be rapping in that kind of time, believe me! Even better, after you're finished, you can stash it in your closet or car! Rocky Raku will show you how.

Okay! So you're wondering, "What's the scoop?" Well, you gotta think different with this one!

Rocky Raku allows you to load your kiln flameless every time.

Instead of a preheated kiln, you place your ware into an inactive chamber and fire up! In 15 to 30 seconds you're cruising at glaze meltdown. When ready, shut hot blast of flame in your face, no singed eyebrows, just a glowing, hot flash, allowing you a quick, easy, flameless tong pull. Operating Rocky results in the same effect on your pottery as traditional kilns, without excessive fuel consumption and long heating periods.

I can show you in no time flat how to put all of this together as a working portable Raku kiln! You see, I wrote a book on doing all this back in the '70's called "Kiln Building with Space Age Materials"! Prentice Hall was the publisher, but darn, if it isn't out of print now! So, I've updated all the good stuff you're missing and I'm offering it to you here and now on the Web!

Yep, you can print out the eManual right now!  In minutes you will have your own personal Raku kiln building manual! Of course, if you want to do different kinds of firing, or melt metal, or pour glass with this, that's cool, too! 

Below are examples of three bowls that recently went through the raku experience with "ROCKY".
