One Day Raku Firing
with Scott Stockdale
Raku is a dramatic and exciting alternative firing technique! Unlike most ceramic firing processes, Raku is a very fast process. Red hot pieces are removed from the kiln and placed in a reduction chamber filled with combustible materials to create flashes of color in the glazes.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience and is open to students 16 and older.
Bring your own pieces, up to 6, to be fired. They must be no taller than 8 inches and no wider than 6 inches. Because of spacing, plates and wide bowls should be avoided for this firing. Your pieces must be bisque fired to either cone 06 or 04 using Stoneware or Raku clay. Glazes will be provided. Feel free to email ClayWorxStudios@gmail.com if you have any question about specialty pieces.
Since we are working around very high temps, cotton clothing, long sleeves, jeans, and closed toe shoes are a must.
All tools will be provided. If you have welding gloves and would like to bring them, feel free. Make sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty or smelling like a campfire.
Classes may be cancelled at short notice if the minimum attendance is not achieved. Your money will be refunded should this happen.
