Woodfire: October 2017
Bring your bisqued work (in a cone 10+ clay body) and fire it in our backyard wood kiln! To participate, students will help prep for the firing by cutting wood, grinding and washing shelves, and creating wadding; during the firing, shifts will be assigned to monitor the temperature and load the wood while overseen by a professional potter. The resulting work is always interesting, and varies based on position in the kiln and contact with the ash, which glazes the surface.
What to bring:
Work must be bisqued and made from clay rated to at least cone 10 (SCAA members and students should use B-MIX or #950). Cone 10 studio glazes are included and should be applied prior to March 25th.
- 22464 cubic inches are available.
- Artists may buy multiple shares.
- To determine cubic inches, measure the height, width and depth of each piece and multiply the three dimensions. Do this for each piece and add the results together.
