Painting with Fire: Native American Firing Techniques
Experience two exciting ceramic firing techniques-raku and saggar firing. Raku is a fast process from 16th century Japan that produces a rainbow of colors and effects. Burnishing and saggar firing produces beautiful pinks, oranges, and earth tones- a technique closely associated with Native American and Greek pottery. Thrown or hand-built work created in the beginning of class will be fired in both of these magical methods.
