We have also been invited to the Halswell wood firing! This is a great oppotunity to do some firing in an reduction atmosphere and also meet some people from both clubs!
The firing is on the 1st October 8am start. The kiln will be stacked on Friday the 30th September and all pots will have to be in on Thursday the 29th September.
Pots should be glazed on the inside with a splash on the outside. Leave some naked clay so the wood can color the pots.
Keep your eyes open for some more information regarding the firing and what glaze to use.
Note that you will be required to help with the firing in its many steps. This could include chopping wood beforehand, stoking the fire on the day or anything else that needs to be done.
A roster with jobs will be coming out closer to the time. There is a document attached with some basic information.
Please no children at any of the firings at Halswell pottery. There is a number of dangerous hazards during the firing and is not a suitable environment for children.
