Upcoming Events


Program for Alternative Firing Workshops

My 5-day workshops on Alternative Firing  cover Ceramic Sagger Firings, Foil Sagger Firing and Obvara. If time permits, we can also fire

raku, latex resist glaze decorating , and horse hair and feathers. During a 5-day course we make pieces for the 3 or 4 processes, make quick

    terra sig, burnish, bisque fire, make obvara brew, make or bring ceramic saggers, and prepare pieces for firing.Depending on the number of      

        raku kilns available we can cover many techniques. In Scotland we had 5 raku kilns, and people brought their bisqueware with them. In two days,fired Obvara, Ceramic Saggers and Foil Saggers with 30 participants. If you are interested in hosting a workshop contact me at Compensation should cover transportation, some variation of room and board, and a stipend.
