This workshop will review and discuss the advantages and possibilities of firing at high temperatures (cone 10-11)in fuel fired kilns and talk about clay bodies, glaze chemistry, vitrification and firing process. We will meet for the first class at the Arts and Innovation Center and make pots either wheel thrown or hand built and go over forms most suited for these processes. In the second class we will meet in Terry's studio at WheatonArts to glaze, decorate and slip the pots using his glazes and colorants. We will then set dates to fire the work in both his gas reduction kiln and his salt glaze kiln. This will be a great opportunity to explore alternative firing methods not available in most school and art center facilities. Each student should be able to complete 6-10 finished pots. There will be a $10 dollar materials fee and a $10 dollar firing fee paid at time of registration. Intermediate wheel and hand building experience needed.
