Robert Escamilla and John Nelson will lead a two-day workshop on alternative firing techniques, including raku, horse hair, and more.
Friday November 6 6pm-9pm
Friday: Discuss glazing (recipes included) and prepare sager/bisque pieces for Saturday morning firing. Potluck dinner. Alternative fire vessels will be available at a nominal cost (some burnished for sagar and horse hair).
Saturday: Fire sager; fire raku; fire horse hair; three kilns will be going full blast during the day. Demos on sand blasting and throwing. Plean on a potluck lunch while kilns are firing.
Note: Vessels should be no larger than 6” wide and 10” tall. A clay with grog or sand, such as one formulated for
Raku, is the best to fire. However B-mix with sand or Balcones will normally work. Remember that the shock a vessel goes through when doing this type of firing enhances the chances that the piece will crack.
