A curated show of Ceramics: The Ceramics will be created using a variety of alternative firing processes. The show includes not previously shown work by David W Riccio, Joyce Payne, Louise Kuntz-Tadda, and Doris Alcorn created over the last few years. The show will consist of ceramics and photos of the processes that document and explain the creation processes.

During the last few years, we have been creating ceramics with these processes, and have come to love the methods and resulting designs. The look and feel of these ceramics is unique, and the color and surfaces that can be achieved is very attractive and engaging.

This show highlights work made by the Raku process and related primitive firing processes like Sawdust, Saggar, Bonfire, and Naked Raku. Some of the Ceramics are decorated with Decals and post firing surface treatments like concrete paints. Some will include additions like cork lids, wood handles, and fiber bases.

On exhibit: September 1-30
