Alternative Firing Techniques
Engage with fire to explore the mysterious surface techniques of raku, sagger, and horsehair firing. Bob will share how to use terra sigillata, covering specialized methods that showcase the subtle qualities of the burnished clay. Metallic glazes and organic materials such as horse hair, will yield stunning results after firing. Please bring 6 unfired pots or sculptures to burnish, and 6 bisqued pieces to glaze and fire in the raku kiln. All levels are welcome.
