Course Detail: PER657 - Ceramics: Wood and Soda Firing
This class will focus on making various pottery forms intended to be fired in our NEW hybrid wood/soda kiln as well as other kilns. What is a wood/soda kiln? It's a wood kiln that gets soda sprayed into it at the end of the firing. We will enjoy the results of both wood and soda-fired ceramic surfaces from the same firing! Participants will learn how to glaze and prepare pottery for wood/soda firings, as well as learn how to load and fire the kiln. The course will consist of demonstrations and open studio work time for participants. Open to all levels.
* Students will need to supply the following: 1-gallon bucket, towel, apron, and plastic bags.
Students are also required to supply a pottery tool kit. Kits can be purchased from either of these suppliers:
