COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Columbia is introducing a Japanese style of pottery to the public at a weekend festival.
The Spring Raku Festival is scheduled to Saturday at the Art Center on Calhoun Street. Events are free and are open to the public.
The Raku style involves heating a glazed ceramic vessel to nearly 2,000 degrees, then putting the red-hot item in a chamber with combustible material. After the material ignites, the chamber is sealed and flames consume the oxygen, creating unusual metallic colors and surface effects.
Events include demonstrations and opportunities to meet artists who make Raku pottery.
