Carbon Trapped Soda Firing & More
Bring work, make work, fire twice, and a learn a ton! In this 9-day workshop, students will bring cone 10 porcelain or stoneware bisque pottery (about 10 pieces each) and jump into learning about and applying slips and glazes for the soda kiln. All will participate in loading and firing. Throughout the workshop, new work will be made with demos focused on: wheel thrown pottery with an emphasis on making handles, lids and spouts; and specifics on making work for an atmospheric kiln. After unloading the first kiln and discussing results, students will slip, glaze, and fire again. Other discussions with Matt will include marketing, working with galleries, and how to publish.
