POT 20 - Intermediate Wheel (Salt Firing)
with Douglas Tobin
Intermediate wheel pottery class with a special class focus on salt firing. In salt firing, salt is introduced into the kiln atmosphere, which interacts with the clay body and glazes producing unique effects in color and texture. Students will learn how to glaze for salt firing and help load and unload the salt kiln to learn more about the firing process. Students must have completed at least two beginning pottery on the wheel classes to enroll. They must be able to center clay and throw basic shapes. We will build on those basics to learn how to make more complex shapes, and how to alter forms created on the wheel.
The tuition includes a $55 fee, which covers the cost of one bag of stoneware, raku, or lizella clay (other clays at additional cost), glazes, and 2,000 cubic inches of glaze firing. Students provide their own tools. Additional clay and tools may be purchased from the studio (credit card only). All work fired at Callanwolde must be produced in the Pottery Program studios (no outside work allowed). Students may access the studios on weekends and most afternoons for practice at no additional cost.
