Ceramics Firing Techniques/Alternative Methods
Credits: 3Catalog #20815296
The class will focus on different firing techniques. Techniques covered would be Raku, sawdust firings, the use of saggars at different temperatures, vapor glazes and primitive pit kilns, as well as more traditional luster firings and other low temperature techniques. Surface treatments to pots that enhance the uniqueness of the firing would be stressed. Students will have the opportunity to build kilns and manage the firings themselves. If possible, the class would try to have pieces in, and help with, a wood firing and salt firing. The class will meet in the Downtown Ceramics studio as well as at the Commercial Ave Campus for some firings.
