Soda Firing Workshop
Give your work a unique finish by firing it in
the soda kiln, “The Vault.” Soda-fired work
is recognizable by its orange peel texture
and brilliant flashes of colour, brought about
by the introduction of soda near the end of
the firing. Bring bisqued cone 10 pots to fill
two cubic feet of kiln space. Glazing takes
place during the first class. No refunds after
January 14. Seniors discount not available.
