About The Event

Loading: April. 6-8, 2024, 9:30a-5:00p

Firing: Tue-Mon, April. 9-15, 2024 (Shift schedule made at loading)

Unloading: Saturday April 27, 2024, 10:00a-5:00p

Join us for our annual spring firing of the Anagama and ChickenCat! We'll be weloming students, intermittently, from several local k-12 schools.

Newcomers are welcome, but please consider taking a workshop first if you've never wood fired before. Anagama loadings can be overwhelming as there are 50-70 students, artists, and educators present at the loading!

Please plan on having your work at the loading by 9:30 on Saturday, April 6, 2024. You are welcome to arrive the night before to begin prepping your pots. Pieces that arrive after 12:00 noon on loading Saturday may not be loaded. 

*Each participant should plan on attending the loading, at least one day of the firing, and the unloading. Plan one, 8 hour kiln firing shift per 2 cubic feet, and on grinding one shelf per cubic foot during the unloading. 

If you'd like to bring your own cone 10 clazes that's acceptable; if you want to place those glazes on the outside of your work, please create a ceramic "coaster" for each piece to catch any glaze that runs off. The coaster should have raised edges capable of capturing running glaze. That could be a quick and dirty pinched thing, or tiny plates! If you only use your outside glaze as a liner, no coasters are required.

INCLUDED:

-Wadding

-Shino Liner Glaze

-Camping at East Creek

 

Registration will be open until the firing is full. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of signup, with 50% due upon completion of the firing. We must always slightly oversell the kiln to ensure it's filled; your final payment will reflect your actual cubic footage in the kiln. So, if any of your pots don't get in, you don't pay.
