Carbon Trap Soda Firing

September 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018

This workshop begins with discussions on slips and glazes for the soda kiln and the approach for loading the kiln. During class students focus on wheel thrown pottery with an emphasis on making handles, lids and spouts. Demonstrations include how to make work for an atmospheric kiln. Other discussions include marketing, working with galleries, and how to publish your work. Students bring to the workshop cone 10 porcelain or stoneware bisque pottery. Open to all skill levels.
