Sagger Firing

Ted Camp   B-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

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 wheel thrown or handbuilt and usually coated with a terra sigilatta slip that produces a shiny surface. When bisqued, students will partially bury their pieces in sawdust or sand while covering their pieces with a variety of colorants, steel wool, copper wire and organic matter. Pieces will be fired either in clay flower pots (student provided)
or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil to produce a variety of colored affects. Class fee included 25 lbs of clay and all necessary firing.

Raku Excitement

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.

Wednesdays 9:30-12:30

Wheel throwing has attracted students who like symmetrically round objects and has challenged them to learn how to control the development of a particular form. The basic steps to throwing will be the focus for beginners while more advanced students will be challenged by more complex forms and techniques, which will lead to the students’ success, through practice. Students will also explore the myriad ways to apply glazes to their pieces and experience the differences between mid-fire (cone 6 electric) and hi-fire (gas fired cone 10 reduction) glazes. Bring your own tools or purchase a beginner’s kit at our front desk. Class fee includes 25 lbs of clay, firing, and in-studio glazing.

S1: Mar 14, 21, (no Mar 28), Apr 4, 11, 18
