Steven Hill Workshop from June 24 to 28 Steven Hill Teaches Two Workshops at Touchstone Center for Crafts
Posted 29 January 2013 - 11:32 AM
June 24–28 at Touchstone Center for Crafts
Covered Jars: Atmospheric Effects for Electric Firing
Instructor: Steven Hill
Intermediate – Advanced | $800
In this workshop, we will focus on lids, how to make them fit, and the visual relationship between the lid and the pot. Most thrown pots with lids are variations on two basic types. The gallery can either be located on the rim of the pot or on the edge of the lid. When glazing, we will address ways to achieve the kind of richness and surface variation in electric kilns that potters have come to associate with fuel-burning kilns and reduction firing. The goal is not to imitate reduction, but to set the stage so that multiple layered glazes can interact with each other in the firing. The basic techniques of spraying and the more advanced theories of layering and blending glazes will be addressed. We will fire at cone 6 oxidation. This will be an intermediate-to-advanced workshop. Demonstrations will be on throwing and assembly, but hand-builders are welcome as well. Click on the workshop title to learn more. For 25% campus lodging discount type EarlyBird2013 when signing up.
