Join us for the exciting opportunity to experience both woodfiring and raku firing all in the same day! Students will make clay work in the weeks leading up to the firings by registering for a spring 2 class or open studio pass. On Thursday, June 27, we will load the Glassagama wood-fired kiln at Corning Community College with as much work as we can fit. The Glassagama will be lit up on Friday, June 26 and fire overnight and throughout Saturday. Firing led by CCC Professor and 171 Instructor, Fred Herbst. Whatever work is left over from loading the wood kiln will be destined to go through the raku kiln on Saturday, June 29. 171’s Kirk Allen and Amanda Warren will lead students through the fiery procedures from 10am-4pm and give students the chance to have hands-on experience with immediate results from the process. Students are obligated to be present on Saturday for their work to be fired and will have the chance to have a woodfiring shift if they wish. An informational session will be held on Tuesday May 14 at 7pm in 171’s ceramic studio for tips, background information, and safety procedures for the firing Extravaganza!

Register and create work in one of the following classes to be eligible for the Raku firing:

Wheel Throwing | Spring 2
Midday Clay | Spring 2
Open Studio Pass | Spring 2

Students may trade the 553 clay body provided in their regular spring 2 class for the Raku clay body upon clay availability, free of charge. Extra Raku clay will be available for purchase. Space limited.
