Participating potters begin by loading their pots on Saturday, November 30th at 10 a.m. The kiln will be fired Saturday, December 14th. Unloading is scheduled for Saturday, December 21st.
During the loading, a strong emphasis will be placed on discussion of glazing and slipping techniques, loading and stacking pots in the kiln to their best surface advantage and salting techniques. Potters should bring enough bisque fired pots to fill a 24 inch x 24 inch x 9 inch space within the wood kiln. The kiln is located in Cascade. Md.
