“Slip” Into Soda Firing

June 7, 2020 – June 13, 2020

Brenda Lichman

During this workshop students will discover approaches to creating thrown and altered pottery using slip techniques that enhance forms fired in an atmospheric kiln. You will learn how to alter forms by pushing, pulling and manipulating clay while adding slip decoration. The class will cover flashing slip techniques, in-depth discussions of the soda firing process and glazing for the soda kiln. Students should bring three to five bisque fired pots that will be glazed and fired to cone 10 using the instructor’s slip and glaze recipes and engage in the loading and firing of Arrowmont’s soda kiln. Throwing skills preferred but not necessary.
