Sagger Firing, Ted Camp

Ted Camp  B-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, and provided by the student) or within a wrapped shell of aluminum foil to produce a variety of colored affects. Includes 25 lbs of clay and firing.

Raku-Fire & Smoke, 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.

Working With Glaze Chemicals, Ted Camp

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

This course explores the chemical constituents of glazes in non-technical ways & would interest any student who is interested in making their own glazes. Knowing what a chemical contributes to the glaze formula is critical in choosing chemicals that provide the surface or color a student is looking for. Another important area of concern for students making functional glazes is that the glaze needs to be food-safe and durable in its use. Students will receive a special computer glaze calculator, which will help them to see when a glaze is properly fluxed to produce a durable surface and will help them to know what it will look like before the glaze is made. Students will make their own glazes and adjust them to produce desired results on test tiles. Time will be spent applying test glazes to test tiles, and not constructing work. No clay will be provided.

Wheel Throwing-Morning, Ted Camp

Ted Camp B-A
Wednesdays 9:30-12:30

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

S1: Sep 4, 11, 18, 25, Oct 2
S2: Nov 13, 20, (no Nov 27), Dec 4, 11, 18

Advanced Decorative Techniques, Ted Camp

Ted Camp I-A
Thursdays 9:30-12:30

This class, designed for the intermediate/ advanced clay student, will focus on decorative techniques, which contribute to the improved complexity of the design of the student’s pieces. The use of colored slip in the process of mishima and sgraffitto, using colored clay in the process called millefiore (Itallian) or Neriage (Japanese), and techniques of applying glazes with spray guns will be employed on either wheel thrown or handbuilt clay objects, functional and/or sculptural. Use of low-fire lusters will also be introduced. Discussion will focus on improving the aesthetics and refinement of the student’s end product. Class fee includes 25 lbs. of clay, glazes and all firing.
