Clayton Amemiya will open his garden and studio to a small group of people during the peak of his wood firing in this unique kiln, where temperatures of 2400 degrees are reached over a period of several days. The tour of his studio will allow you an up close peek into the amazing and time consuming process of wood firing. It will also be an excellent opportunity to preview his solo show in the Park gallery which opens July 26th, 2014.
The tour is scheduled for Friday June 6th, from 12-2pm at Amemiya’s studio north of Hilo. The cost for this event is $55.00, and includes a small tea cup from the artist. Reservations are required.
