playing with fire? We have something for you.
New Mexico Clay will be holding its first
alternative firing class. What is an alternative firing you might ask? There
are many methods that fall under this category. Raku, Horsehair, smoke
firing, sagar firing, residual salts and so much more.
The class is 6 weeks long and will meet for
three hours, each Saturday. In each class, we will work to cover a different
method of firing. The goal being, to show different ways to finishing your
pots, that can be accomplished even at your own home.
There are a couple of requirements for this
1. You must bring already bisqued pieces.
2. You must
dress accordingly. Close toed shoes only, no sandals. Long pants, no shorts
or skirts. Bring an overshirt you can wear while in the firing process. You
want to protect yourself as much as possible. No polyester. We’d also suggest
that you not wear hairspray or any other flammable sprays.
Some variety of glazes as well as tools will be provided.
So if your looking for something new or just like playing with fire,
come join us.
6 Saturdays Time 9 AM to 12 PM
Dates September 10th, 17th,
October 1st, 8th, 15th
