We’ll be firing a Cone 10 Reduction Kiln with a New, Colorful Selection of Glazes! Bring lots of Bisque Ware! We’ll be applying color slip to your bisque ware and re-bisque firing the work. You will need to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for info regarding what temperature to bisque fire this work to for the best results. The glazes include a Cone 10 Reduction Pink, Turquoise, Lime Green and Orange! They’ll be 10 plus glazes for this workshop. This workshop also includes instruction in Firing Cone 10 Reduction, Throwing Porcelain and using Decorative Slip. Participants will also be on the wheel for hands-on work and individual instruction to improve your throwing skills.
