This three-day workshop will teach you how to correctly load and fire Adamah’s Bailey gas kiln in reduction to cone 10. Spend Thursday glazing your work. Six to eight studio glazes will be available. On Friday we will load the kiln, learn about the gas kiln, and discuss what happens in a reduction atmosphere. Saturday we will fire the kiln. (12+ hour firing). The participants will need to return to Adamah a few days later to unload the kiln, clean the kiln shelves and discuss our firing results. Bring 20-30 bisque fired pieces (plates and wide, flat pieces are discouraged). Pieces MUST be made from a cone 10 clay body. It is helpful to bring a notebook and a camera.
