RAKU! HAVING FUN WITH SMOKE & FIRE
ON THE FRONT LAWN OF THE LCCC

Lincoln City Cultural Center PictureLINCOLN CITY – On select Saturdays this summer, the Lincoln City Cultural Center has been hosting a series of outdoor Raku pottery firing demonstrations. But the fiery fun is not over yet. You still have two more chances to catch the Raku spirit: Caroline & Ben Brooks, of Lincoln City Clay, will be hosting these events from 11 am to 3 pm on two more Saturdays, Sept. 5 and 12. For more information, drop by the LCCC or call 541-994-9994.
The exciting demonstrations are a great way to learn about the historic firing process as well as experience a fun art technique. Enjoy watching the demonstrations for free or you may also purchase a pot to have glazed on site. The whole process takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
Raku is a type of pottery firing process based on 16th century Japanese firing techniques that uses fire and smoke to create unique patterns and designs. The process involves heating the pottery quickly in a specialized kiln until it’s glowing hot. The pottery is then removed with tongs and placed in metal containers filled with combustible materials, which catch fire. The container is sealed and as the fire consumes the oxygen in the container a reduction (low oxygen) environment is created that reacts with the copper in the glaze, creating dynamic metallic effects.
The term Raku means “happiness” in Japanese and was the name given to the style of pottery and to the family recognized for the early development of the firing process in Kyoto. The process was not well known outside of Japan until the early twentieth century when English studio potter Bernard Leach attended a dinner party in which the technique was demonstrated and he referenced it in a memoir. American potters experimented with the technique and developed the version widely used today.

AUDITIONS – REGISTRATION OPEN FOR THE CENTRAL COAST CHORALE

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23RD & WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26TH!

CENTRAL COAST CHORALE2The Central Coast Chorale kicks off the new season with auditions for new singers Sunday, August 23 from 2:00 to 4:00 and Wednesday, August 26 from 4:00 to 6:00. Auditions will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Newport at 227 NE 12th Street. First rehearsal for everyone and registration for returning singers is Saturday, August 29 at 9:30 at the First Presbyterian Church. The group will go through warm-ups and review music for the December concerts.
 “Auditions are open to anyone 14 and older with an interest in singing,” says Mary Lee Scoville, director of the Chorale. “They are done in a very non-threatening environment but are necessary to determine vocal range, voice type, and previous musical experience.”
Rehearsals are generally held every other week on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 12:30 at the Performing Arts Center. Specific dates and policies will be reviewed during the first rehearsal. Dues are $40 per semester or $75 for the year. A limited number of scholarships are available.
 “One of the things that draws me to choir is my love of music and singing with other people,” says David Adolf, president of the chorale. “We have a wide variety of songs and I really like the spirituals. Another thing I appreciate is the broad make-up of our singers, some who have very strong music skills and others who do not. Everyone can pull from those with stronger skills and learn music reading and counting.”
 Although it makes learning easier, singers need not be able to read music. Recorded CDs will be available for all the music with specific section parts emphasized.
The chorale will present its annual “Wishes and Candles” concert on December 6. Benjamin Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” will be featured along with other sacred and secular holiday music. Additionally, a special performance in collaboration with the Newport Symphony Orchestra and the Corvallis Repertory Singers will be presented at the Newport Performing Arts Center on December 12 and 13. Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio” and Morten Lauridsen’s “Lux Aeterna” will be featured in the concerts.
 “Our director has a way of bringing out the best in your performance,” says Adolf. “No matter your skill level, Mary Lee will make you work until the performance is excellent and she does it without criticism. It takes a special person to move a group along like that.”
The Central Coast Chorale has been directed by Dr. Scoville since its inception in 1997 and is dedicated to providing the community with quality music that entertains and educates. For more information, contact Scoville at 541-563-6830.

flory_clay_ocarina_with_two_tonesThe Yaquina Art Association Gallery will feature the work of Artisan, Eileen Flory from August 29, through Sept. 11 in a two week spotlight.  The gallery is open daily from 11 to 4 pm daily and is located in the Nye Beach area at 789 NW Beach Drive in Newport, Oregon.

Eileen Flory loves to work with and will be showing art made from clay, pressed seaweed and paper crafts.  She says,   “I like the feel of all the materials I work with. Clay is so plastic and cool in the hands, and it’s very forgiving. It takes impressions nicely, from nautilus shells to leaves to the ends of thread spools. When I work with clay I feel as though I am collaborating with Mother Nature, using earth, fire, water, and air. -In both clay and textile work, I am inspired by native techniques and designs, especially those of Mexican artisans.”

Eileen will be displaying clay plaques, boxes, vases, whistles and ocarinas.  She uses pressed seaweed, screen prints and some vintage textiles and bags in her artwork.  She enjoys spinning, dyeing and weaving wool in her spare time as well as making illustrations.

Eileen has an education in Spanish, anthropology and music.  She enjoyed many trips to Mexico as a child and for anthropology and craft purchasing.  She has enjoyed traveling and mentions the Grand Canyon, Antarctica, and the Amazon as highlights.  She plays music on her viola da gamba with other people twice a week.

(null)Select Saturdays, 11am-3pm:
September 5, 12*

Join us at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, located at 540 NE Hwy 101, on select Saturdays this summer for Raku demonstrations. Raku is a type of pottery firing process with origins in the 16th century that uses fire and smoke to create unique patterns and designs. Using an outdoor kiln, glazed pottery is removed while it’s glowing hot and then transferred to a lidded container of combustible materials. As the resulting fire consumes the oxygen inside the container, oxygen is also drawn out of the pottery and glaze creating beautiful unpredictable crackle patterns and metallic colors.IMG_0636

Watch demonstrations for free or you may purchase a pot to glaze and have fired on site. Prices range generally from $20-$50, depending on the size of the pot, and includes the cost of glaze and firing.

This project is sponsored by the City of Lincoln City and presented by the Lincoln City Cultural Center and Lincoln City Clay.

*Please note that demonstrations are weather dependent. We’ll post scheduling pdates here as well as on our Facebook page.
