About the Workshop

From Raku, burnishing and stoneware soda firing in our gas kiln to a saggar firing with wood of burnished pieces, this class gives you the opportunity to make and fire clay pots or sculptures and experience many firing techniques to produce rich and varied surface colors and textures.  We will make work for three days, burnish or glaze, and fire for the last two days. This class is for the novice as well as more advanced painter or potter who wants to expand their visual vocabulary and experience new options in clay.
