Hands on raku, sagger & horsehair firing workshops. Participants should bring lots of bisque ware. Pots for Raku should be no larger than 6" to 8". Pots for horsehair or sagger should be burnished round shapes. Use groggy stoneware or raku clay.  A small selection of glazes will be provided.

"I have been working in clay for 25 years. Working in woodfiring, pit firing, horse hair firing, soda firing and raku, my vessels take their influences from natural forces in our environment. I find physical impulses are represented in the process of creating the work and the finished piece."
