Join us in one of the most ancient forms of ceramics. Using natural and found materials we will place works into the soil for firing. The technique is a marriage between the artist and chance, experimentation and observation, where discovery becomes as significant as invention, and failures should be seen as part of the process of learning. All works being used in the pit firing must be bisque fired prior to the firing.
Learn the chemical & material properties of glazes, along with how to alter commercial glazes. Together we will go over the different chemical ratios used to make glazes along with a variety of oxides, feldspar's, and frits.
A four week course focused on the essential steps of creating functional pieces on the pottery wheel. Food safe, no experience required, all are welcome.
