In partnership with Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill Center, this workshop will be using the Castle Hill train kiln. Experience the excitement, camaraderie and beautiful results of wood firing in Castle Hill’s wood kiln! Participants will help stoke the kiln all the way to 2300 degrees using only wood as a fuel source all the while creating colorful flashing and ash deposits on their pieces. Students will participate in all aspects of the firing.
On May 6, students will meet at the kiln site at Castle Hill to glaze their work and load the kiln. Firing will occur May 7 and 8, and the kiln will be unloaded on Friday, May 11.
Included in this workshop is a three hour workshop on making/glazing for wood. This workshop will be conducted in Falmouth by Seth Rainville, a nationally recognized ceramic artist with over twenty years experience building and firing wood kilns. The date for this has yet to be scheduled. Sarah Caruso, with Brian Taylor of Castle Hill, will be coordinating and leading the firing. Cone 10 clay for this experience may be purchased through the Falmouth Art Center, which includes the cost of bisqueing work at the FAC, and use of both FAC and Castle Hill glazes. Other cone 10 clays may be used, but must be approved by Sarah Caruso.
