Gas Firing Workshop

  • Anne Chambers Pottery 1155 Brooke Valley Road Perth, ON, K7H 3C6 Canada (map)

Date: June 2 – 3,  10 - 4:30 pm Saturday/Sunday     Cost: $150 + HST(19.50) = $169.50

Saturday: glaze your ^10 pots and load the gas kiln.  The kiln will be lit at 10 pm Saturday night reaching temperature around 5pm Sunday. The kiln will go into reduction around 10 am on Sunday morning.

Sunday: learn about reduction the how, why and when and using an oxy probe.  While the gas kiln is firing we will try out more involved glazing techniques; latex, wax, spraying, how to layer glazes to enhance your pot. Bring 4 - 5 bisqued ^6 clay pots small to medium with attachments; handles, knobs or sprig decoration (places for different glazes to be applied) for a cone 6 electric firing.  These you will take home and fire at ^6 or I will fire for a minor fee.

What to bring: 5 - 6 pots of various sizes small to medium made from ^10 clay bisque fired to ^06 and 4 -5 Cone 6 clay pots bisque fired to cone 06. Pre waxed pots will speed up the day. We will explore the classic gas fired glazes; Celadon, Rutile blue, Copper red, Tenmoku and Shino along with a few newer contemporary glazes.  All cone 10 and cone 6 glazes will be supplied. If you want to spray glazes bring an N-95 mask available from most hardware stores.

All fired pots will be picked up during the week or the following Saturday June 9th. If you would like to buy a single bag of cone 10 clay for the workshop vs. a box contact me. ($20 bag)
