Raku: The Magic of Copper

Fine textured patterns and pearlescent colors are a striking feature of the ceramic sculptures that South Carolina artist Bette Mueller-Roemer creates using the Raku technique. With roots in ancient Japan, Raku is an artistic method of quickly firing and cooling ceramics to create unique coppered pottery. Mueller-Roemer is known locally for her ceramics, which are vibrant and tactile and take the shape of bowls, cylindrical vases, as well as wall sculptures. Revealed Gallery, 191-A Church St., Charleston.
