This is a combination of a demonstration and a hands-on workshop. We will be making pots for the salt kiln in September and coming back to fire them in October. A salt kiln is a high temperature, cone 10 kiln that uses rock salt at the end of the firing to form a glaze on the outside of the pieces. On October 8 we will be glazing our pots, loading and starting the kiln. On October 9, your attendance is not required all day but the kiln will be firing and you are welcome to stay as long as you want to learn about the firing process. Come prepared to get dirty. You should bring a towel, an apron, and your favorite pottery tools.
Previous experience with clay required.
