The Yuko-en Japanese Garden, 700 Cincinnati Pike, Georgetown, will host a public demonstration and brief talk about the unique style of Japanese raku pottery from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday. Local artists demonstrate how the intense heat, smoke and flame produce the beautiful metallic colors distinguishing Raku from other methods of firing clay. Free and fun for all ages.
