Jeremy Kane’s exhibit of wood, soda and gas-fired ceramics is currently on display at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. On Thursday, Jan. 21 from 7-8:30 p.m. he will deliver a free admission lecture and slideshow about his process and techniques, which are unique in Juneau due to the type of kiln he built with his colleagues and students on the University of Alaska Southeast campus where he has been a professor of art for the past 11 years.

This wood-fired kiln is modeled after a Japanese firing technique, used as far back as the third and fourth centuries. The three-chambered tunnel structure is called a train kiln. Pots do not need to be glazed before firing, because the wood ash adheres to the surfaces and creates rudimentary glazes during the high-temperature firing process. These surfaces can be seen in Kane’s work at the Museum.

This is a free program, and Kane’s work is available for purchase. The exhibit is on display through Saturday, Jan. 30.

The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is located at 4th & Main Streets. Winter hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Admission is free during the month of January in memory of Harold O. Fossum.
