Clay from the Classroom

Everyone is welcome! Guests may purchase and glaze a handmade piece of pottery for $40 and watch as it’s fired in our raku kiln. The kiln is heated to 1900 degrees and opened to expose the red hot pottery inside.The work is placed in metal cans filled with combustible material. The fire reacts with the glaze to create iridescent and metallic effects on the pottery. Wiping off the ashes from the fire reveals flashes of brilliance and metallic shine. While you are waiting for your masterpiece you can enjoy the gallery show Clay from the Classroom featuring work made at clayspace.
