This six week session will be dedicated to Raku, Horsehair Raku, and Obvara; and is designed for intermediate skill levels due to the thermal shock involved in Raku firing.??Raku pieces are glazed and taken out of the kiln hot and placed into a reduction chamber with combustibles.? Horsehair pots are taken out of the kiln hot, and draped with hair from a horses tail, and sometimes… feathers! Obvara pots are taken out hot, and dipped into a special obvara brew to scald the surface of the pot.? Four two and a half hour class sessions will be dedicated to making pots designed for raku firing, and 2 classes will be 4 hour firing days. If you’ve been making pots for a while, and don’t have the opportunity fire like this, come join us!
