Exhibit preview: “A Passion for Fire” manipulates glaze to produce exciting forms of pottery

From the July 10, 2014 edition

Ohio-based pottery artist Tom Radca’s current exhibit is a wide-ranging representation of his work.

For the last 13 years, Radca has produced various forms of pottery, and finds his large (30-inch) plates some of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of his work.

The most exciting aspect of Radca’s process is his manipulation of glaze during the firing process, or as the artist puts it, “‘painting with fire’ glazing technique.”
