Sign up now to experience the flash of the Baltimore Clayworks Noborigama! Your pots may take on a rich variety of colorful flashing and deposits from wood ash or soda depending on which chamber you choose. We fire the wood chamber throughout Saturday into the evening, finishing the salt chamber Sunday morning which allows plenty of time for shared conversation and food. Everyone will have an opportunity to choose shifts in preparation and during the firing process that are appropriate. One share constitutes kiln space equal to 12” x 12” x 54”. Participants are encouraged to contact Baltimore Clayworks with questions regarding appropriate clay bodies, slips or glazes for use in the Noborigama.
Glaze time, included with rental share, may be scheduled in advance by contacting email@example.com Plan to have all work glazed and wadded by Noon on day of loading.
