  • Out of the Fire makes use of a 16th century glaze.

Tonight, the Art Space at Eagle Performing Arts Center debuts a series by Idaho ceramicist Rick Jenkins, Out of the Fire.

Jenkins employs a Japanese glazing technique that originated in the Mino region in the 16th century. The glaze is linked to the Zen Buddhist tea ceremony, and offers varied results in earthy shades of color.

For the past 33 years, Jenkins has served as director of and instructor at the Boise City Art Center. His art remains on display through Monday, Dec. 31.

For a chance to meet the artist, the Eagle Performing Arts Center is hosting a reception on Friday, Nov. 30, from 6-9 p.m.
