This course is an introduction to multiple experiences of firing techniques from ancient ceramic traditions as an alternative form of expression in contemporary ceramic practice. The class explores the materials and methodologies of pit-firing, sagger-firing, and wood-firing. A wide range of firing temperatures are explored to mirror the development and understanding of firing methods through history. The course requires travel to off-site locations for daylong excursions on weekends to conduct firings. All clay building techniques are encouraged with each firing method, which offer their own set of parameters on ceramic forms and fired expression.
