Rick Kleiner - May Artist of the Month

May’s Featured Artist – Rick Kleiner

Members of the Arts Coalition of Erie were treated to an amazing presentation by potter Rick Kleiner.

Rick started “playing with clay” back in 1967, and hasn’t looked back since.

His love is raku – which is an ancient Asian pottery technique of creating and glazing outdoors.

Raku pieces are meant to be art pieces, and the translation of Raku means “Happiness by chance”.
