Raku Clay Exhibit at the MLT Library


For the entire month of June you can see Dr. Robert M. Small’s raku clay art exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library. Raku-yaki (??), or Raku ware is a type of Japanese pottery that is distinct because it uses hand molding as opposed to turning on a potter’s wheel. Dr. Small practiced optometry for 40 years and, after retiring, pursued the art of Raku clay. These days his art is his passion: “The balance found between a person’s expression through art and the desire of others to display that art in their homes is a true form of personal satisfaction in life.” The show runs through June 30, Mondays through Thursdays, 10 am to 9 pm, Fridays, 10 am to 6 pm, Saturdays, 10 am to 5 pm and Sundays, 1 to 5 pm.
