Making Pots for Soda Firing
Explore a variety of techniques, including
throwing, altering, and handbuilding, while
giving consideration to both aesthetic
principles and creating forms suitable for
soda firing. Each student is allotted 2 cu. ft.
of kiln space. One session covers glazing,
followed by technicians loading and firing
the kiln. Students participate in the end
of the firing when the soda is introduced.
Unloading and critiques take place in the last
class. Intermediate to advanced: you must
be able to throw an 8” cylinder.
