Christopher Mathie, Red Raku Pottery.

Local ceramicist Christopher Mathie has been invited to show some pottery at the annual fundraising art sale “Behind the Shoji” at Portland’s Japanese Garden, which opens this Saturday.

Says Mathie:

I was very excited to be asked to participate this year and created a collection of new Raku pottery for the show.

Locally, Mathie shows often at Two Vaults Gallery on S. Fawcett downtown.

“Behind the Shoji” runs through September 2. The Garden is open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays, 12-7 p.m. Mondays, and the sale is free with admission, which is $8 adults, $6.25 seniors and students, $5.25 6-17 years, and free for six-and-unders. There are artist demonstrations from 1-3 p.m. most weekend afternoons through summer.
