SummerART Receptions & Raku Demonstrations

Date & Time: Friday, Aug 23, 2013 4:30pm

Who: All ages.
What: MAM proudly displays SummerART students’ artwork at a reception at the end of each session.

Join us to celebrate these bright young artists!
This year, during the SummerART receptions, MAM Ceramics Studio Manager Steve Jaskowak will also lead a Raku demonstration. Raku is a process in which work is removed from the kiln at bright red heat (1800 degrees!) and subjected to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by being placed in trash cans of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface.

When: Fridays, August 9 and 23 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
