From May 27 to May 30, Hawai'i Craftsmen celebrated its 40th annual Raku Ho'olaule'a at Mokule'ia in Waialua. Ken Kang, one of the original organizers of the event, served as both the guest artist and the juror for the exhibition. The exhibition was at Marks Garage and featured the pieces chosen by Ken. Below are images of every piece in the exhibition which closed on July 1. I've also included photos at the end of some of the pieces in the silent auction, Barbara Thompson's display of pots in the showcase, and some of the guys doing raku outside on First Friday.
I began potting in January of 2012. Because I'm so new to potting, I think I understand the challenges of beginning potters and hope this blog will be encouraging to them and a source of helpful information and comment. I hope you'll join the conversation!
