Join us for the Nov. Workshop - High Fire Charcoal Firing with Susan Shield-Polk

For those of us who are looking for something different this fall and are curious about alternative firings, our November workshop will be the chance to experience a high fire, charcoal firing. 

Susan Shield-Polk of Lone Star College will share her knowledge of the process on Saturday, November 12th at Lone Star College in Cypress, Texas. 

She will treat us to a slide show and handouts on the subject. Participants  and will be able to witness the loading and firing process. Everyone will be able to include one bisque fired piece, up to 12” x 12” x 12”, in the firing. The best clays for this process are ones that contain grog. Susan asks that the pieces be made from Balcones, light or dark, cone 10 or Laguna Buff cone 6. She says that these clays get the best results. 

Everyone will be able to retrieve their piece and check out their results on the following Monday.
