Soda Firing: Autum Soda Fire

November 8, 2020 – November 14, 2020

HP Bloomer

During this workshop students will learn about making, glazing and creating decorated surfaces for the soda kiln. The class will cover making forms that best work for the glazing techniques. Demonstrations concentrate on glaze application, masking, sourcing inspiration, firing and loading as well as some basic making methods. Various firing methods will also be discussed. Students should bring their own bisque ware. This class requires basic ceramic skills.


HP Bloomer is adjunct professor at Colorado Mountain College in Aspen, Colorado. He attended the University of North Texas and received his BFA and an MFA in Ceramics. His work focuses on highly decorated utilitarian forms which draw inspiration from his interest in architecture, painters and designers who explore a relationship with the land and nature. He has been an Artist-in-Residence at The Carbondale Clay Center, Arrowmont and at the Cobb Mountain Art & Ecology Project.
