Marc Jeannin will host our upcoming Raku Firings on Potter’s Alley! Participants learn to prepare, glaze & fire their pieces in a Raku kiln. Explore multiple colors and surfaces, achievable with Art Off Center’s selection of Raku glazes, including colors developed by Marc.

Come in during our Open Studio times to make, create and glaze your piece. All pieces MUST be bisqued fired first prior to the scheduled firing days.

To avoid problems with cracking we recommend using a stoneware with grog. AOC stocks a Raku clay for this purpose.
