Raku Happening - Pottery on Fire!
As part of their ongoing Promotion of the Arts and Arts Education, BCAG presents a one day event in two parts.
Participants can come pick out a ready made bisque fired pot , purchase it and then apply glaze(s) of their choice from the selection offered.
After Noon, the glazed pottery firing (2nd stage) will begin. The final step is done by thrusting the re-fired pot into combustable materials, creating a hot flash burn that creates an entirely different and unique finish on the glaze. A Raku fired pot is quite special !
