This class is designed for intermediate and advanced students interested in creating works to be fired in the soda kiln to cone 10. In addition, students will be able to make work experimental cone 04 soda firings. In-class demonstrations will include wheel and hand building techniques to further develop student skills during this intensive course. At least two class firings will take place to allow ample time for students to create works over the full session. Students will be expected to spend some time outside of class helping with the soda kiln during the firing, loading and unloading -the kiln schedule will be discussed with class at the beginning of the session.

  • First bag of clay
  • All firing fees for work created in ALL classes are included in the class fee  (size limit- items must not measure more than 20” in any direction)
