This is a 3-day glaze and gas firing workshop is designed to show students how fire oil spot glazes in an oxidation gas firing. We will be firing a gas kiln to cone 10-12 in oxidation with a reduction soak at peak. You will be able to glaze and fire up to 10 small sized pots (approximate volume is 12” x 12” x 8” high). Suggested shapes are tea bowls, cups and bowls (plates and platters are highly discouraged). Any cone 10 clay body will work but it is suggested that you bring both stoneware and porcelain bisqued pieces. Glazes and glazing instructions will be provided as this is a multiple glazing technique which takes time for the glazes to dry.
We will fire the gas kiln on Saturday. During that time we will go over a brief history, firing cycles, cones, and iron glaze types, like temmoku, oil spot (high feldspar, slip glaze, multi-layering, etc.) iron crystalline, etc. We will unload the kiln on Sunday around 2:00 p.m.
There will also be time for a ‘question and answer’ discussion of various ceramic topics.
