Join us for a 95 hour firing of the Rothshank wood kiln in Goshen, Indiana. This workshop will give you a chance to learn about loading and firing a 2 chamber wood kiln. The kiln is designed to fire a wide range of clay bodies and temperatures. In addition, you’ll have a chance to join each of the special guests inside the adjoining clay studio for special demonstrations including slip casting, trompe l’oeil techniques, handle making, wheel throwing, and guest collaboration sessions. No previous wood firing experience is necessary.
Kiln Share participants are invited to bring their own pots for inclusion in the firing. Each participant will play an active role in the firing process, learning thru participation. Justin will discuss the highlights of this particular kiln, designed to fire clays ranging from cone 02-cone 11. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions, experiment, and observe non traditional approaches to wood firing.
This workshop isn’t meant to be comprehensive in each of the individual artist techniques, but is intended to give participants a chance to participate in a wide range of ceramic making possibilities, while also learning about contemporary wood firing processes. This is an informal, collaboration filled, spontaneous workshop. Participants will get the most out of it by asking questions, observing carefully, and being willing to engage in the process.
Food and lodging are not provided. Participants will be invited to bring work for the kiln. Additional instructions will be sent upon confirmation of participation. Early registration is encouraged, as this workshop is only open to 4 participants in each category.
