Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to introduce the ceramic art of Wally Asselberghs to the gallery. Originally from Belgium, he has trained in Belgium, France and Holland and has been working in clay for more than 42 years. He has been specializing in a specific type of raku known as naked raku since 1995. He has since taught workshops internationally with his work being published extensively, and he was the co-author of a book now regarded as a standard on the subject. His ceramic forms are strong and sculptural canvases for the synthesis of unique firing and glazing processes which he has developed. Please join Zen Mountain Gallery for July Artwalk to purchase a piece of Wally Asselberghs’ work.
