In this firing workshop, participants will focus on 4 low fire techniques including Raku, Barrell, Saggar, and Pit firing. We will discuss the various histories of each of these techniques, along with examining historical and contemporary trends. We will glaze and fire multiple times, experimenting with each technique including paper bag saggars. This experimentation will include burnishing and terra sigillata application. Attendees should bring 10-20 bisque-fired pieces to use. You will have the opportunity to create some pieces while at the workshop, however, there will not be time to use these pieces in the firing. Participants will have the knowledge to recreate any of these firing methods in their home studios, or group studio spaces.
