Functional Work for the Wood Kiln with Nate Willever
Saturday & Sunday, February 13 & 14, 1:30 to 4:30 pm
In this hands on two day workshop we will make functional pots designed to be fired in the Community Art Center Train Kiln. There will be demonstrations on making cups, bowls, pitchers, jars and teapots. We will consider the flame path passing through the kiln and the dynamic ash effects of the wood firing process when making our pots. We will use wood fire specific clay and will dip or brush our pots in a variety of slips that will enhance the atmospheric effects on our fired work.
