Raku fired Boxer statueCommunity members are invited to observe students and faculty in studio arts use the Raku glazing technique to fire small Boxer statues in honor of Dr. Jenny Coyle's inauguration as Pacific's 18th president.

The Raku technique removing glazed ceramics from the kiln while still glowing hot and placing them in combustible materials, like sawdust or newspaper, to create a myriad of colors in the glaze.

Demonstrations will take place at 11 a.m. and noon, and each demonstration takes about 20 minutes. Stop by to watch the process!

A selection of these statues will be offered as prizes during a self-guided scavenger hunt later in the week.
