Vividly Subtle: Pastel Flashing In Soda

In this workshop students are introduced to the variety of colors and textures available within a soda kiln. Through demonstrations and hands-on participation, you will learn techniques for designing and making work with a soda fired surface in mind. Participants will create and encourage visual layers on their work by utilizing glaze and slip application and loading and firing strategies. Discussion topics include the challenges of designing utilitarian pottery and building a personal sensibility of form and function. You should bring cone 10 bisqueware to class and you will also create work to be fired in the soda kiln. Open to all skill levels.
