Wood Firing Intensive: Exploring Regular And Reduction Cool Processes
June 24, 2018 – July 7, 2018
During this workshop students learn to fire Arrowmont’s newly-built train wood kiln. Participants should bring bisqued work (cone 10+ clay) to load in the first firing. While firing, and while the kiln is cooling, you will work together for a cone 9 reduction cool firing. Students will explore slip and glaze techniques that work with both types of firing, as well as loading and firing strategies to maximize desirable surfaces. Open to all skill levels of hand building or wheel throwing. Wood fire experience is helpful but not necessary.
COURSE FEE: $995
