A New Dawn Emerging over Middle and North Sister

Estimated Value: $600

by Karen Kassy


Pottery - 8" x 18" and 9" x 15.5"

Karen states, “Viewing the Sisters from the west, the sun rises over my favorite lake, it's quiet and I am stunned. I recreated this awe in raku pottery."

Artist Statement:

Karen’s two favorite definitions of raku pottery are ‘serendipity by fire’ and ‘happy accident’. She says. “When I take a piece out of the 2000-degree kiln, plunge it into combustibles to catch fire, I never know if it will survive -- and what delightful surprise the glaze and piece will uniquely offer.”
