MCC Cambodian Kiln Ribbon Cutting

Posted in Event by harkinsphoto on October 15, 2012

Middlesex Community College celebrated the opening and ribbon cutting of the new Cambodian Kiln.

The smokeless, wood-fired kiln was built for college and community use. Funding was provided by Middlesex and the Theodore Edson Parker Foundation. Care and use of the kiln will be administered through MCC’s Art Department and was conceived and directed by MCC Art Professor Margaret Rack.

The kiln was built under the supervision of Lowell artist Yary Livan, a survivor of Cambodia’s Pol Pot-era genocide and believed to be one of only four surviving masters of classical Cambodian ceramics.
