July Anagama Kiln Firing

Hambidge Creative Residency Program - a place that inspires

Please note: for everyone’s safety: No alcohol is allowed while on shift or during the two hours prior to your shift.

Also, please bring work gloves, safety glasses, kiln goggles, respirators, kiln shelf scrapers and angle grinders.

Costs: A $50.00 participation fee is required to reserve spot. In addition there is a fee of  2 cents per cubic inch of space your bisqued pieces take up in the kiln. We will measure pieces and calculate each artist’s individual payment. As a general guide, bring at least 10 medium-sized pieces to fire. There will be glazes available (celadon, tenmoku and shinos), as well as some flashing slips to glaze your pieces before loading. Please feel free to bring some of your own Cone 10 glazes to experiment with. Needless to say, your pieces must be made with Cone 10 clay and bisque fired.

There is space on the lawn for free camping and plenty of hotels nearby in Dillard and Clayton.
