Raku Gallery was named such for the Zen translation of 'raku' meaning ease, enjoyment, contentment, pleasure and happiness. The gallery now represents over 200 artists predominately from the Southwest. Kurt and Lynette Ammann, have lived in the area since 2003 and bring fresh, new energy to the gallery.

  • I loved this gallery - very creative and tasteful pieces. It didn't take anything home, but thoroughly enjoyed window shopping. My favorite pieces were the locally harvested wooden bowls - the cracks ...  more »

  • Amazing gallery with so many wonderful pieces. Loved the views as well and the live glass blowing demonstration. The kids were enthralled!
  • Found this gem a few years ago while visiting Jerome. I bought a unique dragonfly necklace and earrings that receives numerous compliments every time I wear it. This gallery is a must see.
  • Long before Tracy opened the Raku Gallery he had a modest little pottery shop not far from Aurum Jewelry. His Downhill Trading Co. was the kind of place where you'd walk in and find Tracy sitting at his potter's wheel spinning a new creation. Jerome got most of its visitors back then on Holidays and good weather weekends. Fast forward: when Tracy moved further uptown and renovated an old building there, I was immediately blown away. It was sometime in the early 80's I want to say that I walked into his new place and gazed immediately out of a floor-to-ceiling glass window wall. Big, big panes of safety glass that framed the old "One-In-A-Million" Jerome view of the Verde Valley, Sedona's red rock cliffs further out, and finally the San Francisco Peaks 30-40 miles distant, rising above Flagstaff on top of the Colorado Plateau. Holy you-know, Tracy had created the perfect space to both enjoy wonderful art pieces and display while gazing now and then at eternity through that window wall. Today it is still that same amazing place, with even more years of experience and new artists' work. This is a must visit place in northern Arizona. When in Jerome, walk on over and expect to be dazzled in multiple ways once you walk through his showroom's door.
  • Wonderful store. Great imaginative products and great price.
  • Beautiful gallery.
