Raku Hoolauloa Will Fire Up At Mokuleia

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Islander -

The high point of Raku Hoolaulea 2013 is May 24-27 at Camp Mokuleia, where artists bring their pre­made ce­ramic pieces to be glazed and raku-fired in por­ta­ble kilns.

The pub­lic is in­vited to visit and watch the fir­ings all week­end and also par­tic­i­pate in the com­mu­nity kiln, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Satur­day. Here in­di­vid­u­als can buy and glaze a tea bowl cre­ated by a mem­ber of Hawaii Crafts­men. Pre­fired bowls and cups also will be avail­able for sale.

A day pass costs $5 at the camp gate. Ju­ry­ing of the art­work for the an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion is set for May 27 on the beach.

Spe­cial guest artist and con­tem­po­rary ju­ror for the hoolaulea is Jerome Heck of Pupukea. Heck will share his tex­tu­ral meth­ods and tool-mak­ing tonight (May 22) — in a slide lec­ture at 6 p.m. and wet clay demon­stra­tion at 7 p.m. — at UH Manoa Art Depart­ment.
