Students bring their bisque pieces and spend the day glazing and firing in the raku kiln. We will do a combination of firings: traditional raku, naked raku, and horsehair. For best results, students should use white stoneware clay, which may be purchased in advance. Pieces can be bisque fired in Silvermine’s kiln two weeks prior to the date of the workshop. We will accommodate as many firings as the day allows. Expect to get at least 5 medium size (approximately 8 x 8 x 8 inches would be considered medium size) pieces fired. Pieces should be based on cylindrical forms, not flat, or over 10 lbs. Students must wear cotton clothing that covers arms and legs, sturdy shoes, and hair must be tied back.
