Sagger Firing, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

Sagger firing is a special way of low-firing (1300-1600 degrees) unglazed clay pieces, which are fumed inside special containers leaving serendipitous colored surface patterns. This process will not involve glazing. Pieces may be either wheel thrown or handbuilt and usually coated with a terra sigilatta slip that produces a shiny surface. Once bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in wood shavings or sand while covering the exposed surfaces with a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire, and organic matter. The pieces will then be fired in either ceramic flower pots (sagger) or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil to produce a variety of colored affects. Class fee includes 25# of clay and firing.

Raku – Smoke & Fire, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   B-A
Thursdays 1:00-4:00

Raku has become a popular way of fast firing claywork. Students will produce either handbuilt or wheel thrown work and apply special glazes to their bisque-fired work PRIOR to each class. During class, pieces will be fired quickly and removed from the hot kiln while the glazes are still molten. Work will then be placed into smoking chambers where the glazes will develop a variety of surface and colored effects while rapidly cooling. Students may try naked raku, obvert, and horse-hair techniques as choices for their surface patterns. Class fee includes 25# of clay, glazes, and in-studio firing.

Extruder Clay Construction, Ted Camp

Ted Camp  I-A
Thursdays 9:30-12:30

Clay is an ideal medium for creating and building with extrusions. Using small hand extruders and larger wall-mounted extruders, students will construct forms in a variety of scale. Extruders greatly speed up the construction time allowing the student more time to explore creatively using the extruded parts. Pieces may be built entirely from extrusions or combined with other traditional hand building techniques. Students may choose between sculptural and utilitarian forms. Firing and glazing choices include using either cone 6 electric or cone 10 reduction kilns. Class fee includes 25# of clay, glazes, and in-studio firing.
