WOOD FIRING mastercourse
at the International Ceramic Studio
30 March - 3 April, 2023
A somewhat hidden gem of the studio is one of the few kilns in the world designed and built by Japanese master Masakazu Kusakabe.
In this course I'll teach about woodfiring in general and also about the special firing cycle and unique features of the Sasukenei kiln. This kiln makes it possible to achieve results of the traditional Japanese anagama, have the flexibility of firing range from lower fire clays to porcelain like a noborigama, while having an economic building cost, short and sustainable firing cycle.
My firing routine -which can also be used in different kiln designs- favours colour of glazes and clays, and production of various ash and flame effects known from Japanese pottery with the use of less wood and time.Click for details.
