This class is designed for intermediate and advanced students interested in creating works to be fired in the soda kiln, utilizing mid range temperatures (cone 6). In-class demonstrations will include image and surface techniques to apply to handbuilt and wheel thrown forms during this intensive five-week course. One class soda firing will take place on or after the last class to allow ample time for students to create works over the full session.


Each class enrollment minimum; 4, maximum 8
