Join our Resident Artist, Ian Hall, for a one-day class in which he will discuss the general history, theory and practice of firing ceramics in a raku kiln. He will also discuss raku kiln design and demonstrate how to build a raku kiln using an electric kiln and propane gas burner. Basic raku firing techniques will be discussed and put into practice in the Reitz Ranch raku kiln. There will be ample time for participants to glaze their work using basic raku glazes provided for the class.
(Current members receive a $5 discount on current class)
Participants should bring bisqued pieces no larger than 10” tall by 6” wide for the firing. Please keep in mind:
Ian Hall is a Northern Arizona local from Flagstaff, AZ. Ian is the Ranch’s first resident artist. Ian focuses on abstracting the function of his ware in order to deliver his perspective on functional and sculptural pottery in attempts to give the viewer a unique piece of artwork.
He plans to take the lessons and knowledge learned at the Ranch to a university after completing his residency.
