In this workshop students learn how to load and fire in Arrowmont’s newly built soda kiln. Participants should arrive with bisqued pots. Discussions include techniques to glaze, wad and position each piece in the kiln in anticipation of the flame’s affect. During class, students will focus on thrown and altered pieces with an emphasis on creating forms that will capture the path of the flame in specific ways. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
Stuart Gair is a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana and is a functional potter who primarily uses the soda kiln. He received a BAS in History from Ohio University and an MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Gair begins each piece by throwing on the wheel and then manipulating it once off the wheel.
