About the event
This 2-Day workshop is intended for ceramicists who have limited to no previous knowledge of Alternative
Firing techniques or those who would like a fresh perspective on these methods.
The workshop will start with a brief demonstration on how I mix, apply, and burnish with Terra Sigillata.
This workshop will cover my firing techniques which include, Saggar firing and Raku firing using soluble
metal salts and a combination of these methods. Saggar creates a localized reduction atmosphere that
concentrates the effects of salts, metal oxides and organic materials on the surface of the ware.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own organic materials to use and experiment with.
Participants will not be making any work and each participant would ideally bring suitable bisque pieces -
either sculptural or vessel forms. Information on this will be provided after booking. The focus will be on
decorating and firing techniques. It is anticipated that each participant will take home around 6 finished
pieces. Most pieces should be of 'modest' size (no taller than 8 inches).
