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
