04 Jan Glorious Glazes for Raku Firing – Jan 22 Program
RAA’s January 22 Program guest artist will be Marijke Terwissha, known for her unique designs in ceramics. At this program she will present, “Glorious Glazes for Raku Firing”. She will bring examples of her fascinating tiles, with the jewel-like colored glazes she uses on the traditional form of raku firing. Raku is where the ceramic piece is fired in a controlled fire. As well as the tile samples, she will be sharing glaze information and the special techniques that she uses. What she accomplishes with her glazes is nothing less than amazing!
Program – Tuesday, Jan 22 at 7 pm. Open to the public, free to RAA members, $3 for guests.
Also note: Marijke will be offering a one day workshop on Saturday, January 26 from 10 am to 3 pm. Learn about the magnificent glazes and the techniques of applying them. With Marijke’s guidance, you will experience using her glazes to create your own individually expressive tile. During this workshop, you will finish your tile by putting it in a rake firing. A great time awaits all who participate!!
