Curated by Raku expert and educator, Patrick Timothy Caughy
Featuring functional and sculptural works by contemporary ceramic artists who employ the ancient technique of raku firing. These artists “paint with fire.”
From the blackened geometric tile wall pieces of Indiana artist Nell Devitt, to the footed tea bowls of California based Japanese American, Perry Okimoto, the effects of the firing technique are exquisite.
