Wood Firing and Reduction Cooling
August 4, 2019 – August 10, 2019
During this workshop students learn and expand their knowledge of the wood firing process, with special emphasis on reduction cooling using the new train kiln. Participants should bring bisque-fired pottery to slip, glaze, wad and load into the kiln. You will fire, cool and unload the kiln. Topics discussed range from wood sources and clay bodies to cleaning pots and the challenges of wood firing. Making techniques are also demonstrated. No prior wood firing experience is necessary. Open to all skill levels.
