2020 Workshops

Throwing, Spraying and ^6-8 Electric Firing
with Steven Hill


This workshop is designed to help you get the most out of YOUR glazes, applied to YOUR pots and fired in YOUR electric kiln. I will demonstrate the basic techniques of spraying and also spend time with more advanced theories of layering and blending glazes. I will cover ^6-8 glaze firing and briefly discuss lowering the maturation point of ^10 glazes to ^6-8. I will suggest ways to experiment with the layering process to create your own unique look.

On the first day I will throw, assemble, apply slip and discuss my philosophical approach towards making functional pottery. On the second day I will demonstrate my personal techniques of spraying and layering glazes and students will glaze their pottery. We will then load the kiln(s) and fire overnight to ^6-8. On the third day I will lead discussions on firing schedules and the equipment required to set up your own spraying studio and on further glaze experimentation. The workshop will end with unloading the kiln(s) and discussing the work.

(Fri. – Sun.) February 7-9, 2020

Tuition: $350 for HCAF Members & $395 for Non-Members
