CLASS DESCRIPTION
In this class students will participate in a soda firing at the Mendocino Art Center in our cross-draft soda kiln. Students will be exposed to various glazing techniques and learn about the effects soda has on wares when it is introduced to the kiln at high temperatures. This course will include loading, firing, unloading and cleaning of the kiln and wares. Glazing and loading will take place Thursday night and the kiln will be fired on Friday with cooling Saturday and unloading on Sunday.

 

ABOUT THE KILN
The cross-draft gas fired soda kiln was built in 2013 by local artist Nick Schwartz and ceramics program manager Evan Hobart. It is a fun and interesting kiln to fire and produces beautiful soda effects on either functional or sculptural ceramics.
