This class will focus on pit firing technique that often yields remarkable surface effects on decorative ware. Vibrant and exciting colorful designs are imprinted on unglazed clay forms by dancing flames carrying fumes from selected combustible materials and chemicals. Clay objects are prepared for the pit using hand building or wheel thrown methods, finished forms are then burnished to get a high sheen. Use of terra sigilata will be encouraged. Low bisque (cone 08 max) pieces are placed within a carefully constructed pit and combustibles that the pieces are flame painted (fumed by chemicals and vapors from the combustibles) as they are exposed to oxidation and reduction atmospheres.

Classes meet with an enrollment limited to 12 participants or less. All students enrolled in wheel throwing classes are guaranteed access to a wheel during class time. Clay must be purchased from ALLI at the time of enrollment at the cost of $35 that includes all firings and glazes. Students are ONLY limited to creating clay works based on the size of the kiln and their vision. Weekly scheduled Open Studio hours are available for free to registered Ceramics students. Additional clay and tools can be purchased at the Art league as needed. Completed work MUST be picked up at the end of each session. Pieces left behind in the studio will be considered abandoned and removed one week before the start of next session. The Art League is not responsible for work left behind after that date.
