Event description

Description

This class will focus on and culminate with a woodfiring in our anagama kiln. We will explore the unique properties of woodfiring, including forms and surface treatments that take advantage of ash and flame. The anagama, a single chamber, tunnel kiln, is an ancient kiln design from China brought from Korea to Japan. Fueled by wood, the pots from an anagama are a collaboration with fire. As the flame moves over and around the work in the kiln like water in a stream, how do the material, form, and surface of our pots influence that flow - depositing ash in eddies and marking the pots with fire?

It is very important that you can commit to the many hours of involvement outside of class that are required! Each student will be expected to sign-up for several shifts to help prepare the wood and the kiln, load pieces into the kiln, stoke the fire over a multi-day firing, and unload/clean-up after the firing. We estimate a minimum of 20 hrs of work time per student, outside the Lab, to be able to do this special firing. Participation in this work is mandatory and an important part of the learning process.
