Sagger Firing, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

Sagger firing is a specialized way of low-firing (1600 degrees) ceramic pieces which fume inside (usually) ceramic containers leaving a serendipitous surface pattern. This process will not involve glazing. Pieces may either be wheel thrown or hand built and coated with a terra sigilatta slip. When bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in containers in sawdust and/or sand while covering their pieces in a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire, and organic matter. Pieces will either be fired in commercial clay flower pots (student provided) or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil. The material provided in the covering will produce a variety of colored patterns, after which the surfaces may be waxed. Includes 25 lbs. of clay.

Raku, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   B-A
Thursdays 1:00-4:00

Raku has become a popular way of fast-firing clay work to about 1860 degrees. Students will produce either handbuilt or wheel thrown work and apply special glazes to their bisque-fired work PRIOR to each class. During class, those pieces will be fired quickly and students will participate in removing their work from the hot kiln while the glazes are still molten. They will then place their work into smoking chambers where the glazes will develop a variety of surface and colored effects while cooling. Students will be exposed to regular and “naked” raku, obvara, and horse-hair techniques as choices for their surface patterns. Class fee includes 25 lbs of clay, glazes, and all firing.
