The focus of this workshop will be "alternative firing techniques". Participants will address technical issues involved in throwing large-scale work through demonstrations of techniques for large platters, double walled vessels, and other large scale works. Participants will be encouraged to practice and explore these techniques.
The workshop will cover glazing, surface decoration, and firing techniques, fuming, and Raku and Saggar firing in a metal container, as illustrated in his book Alternative Kilns & Firing Techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring 4-5 bisqued pieces to participate in the firings. Subsidized by the Lois and Jim Richmond Workshop Fund.
