The Center for Performing Arts is hosting a pop-up visual art sale as part of “Small Business Saturday” on Nov. 25.
Participating artists will include painter Barbara Thomas and ceramic artist Jake Zeiher.
Zeiher works at a home studio in Tangletown and said he’s preparing to fire bowls and teapots at a wood-fired kiln in Henderson, Minn. The fire burns at 2,400 degrees, requiring him to throw in a handful of wood every five minutes for about 72 hours. The pieces take at least three days to cool down, he said.
“The wood-fired process gives it a natural glaze from the flame,” he said, explaining that some of the ashes melt into the glaze.
The sale is 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the center’s sun room studio at 3754 Pleasant Ave. S.
