Community Event: Blackware Drum Firing

All skill levels are invited to participate in an outdoor blackware drum firing activity. Coreena will have a number of pre-made pieces for purchase ranging from $35 – $65. Each participant should bring one bundle of wood to the firing (small, the size you can pick up at a gas station).

If anyone wishes to bring a piece of their own, a raku clay body is recommended, burnished with at least 3 coats of terra sigillata. Greenware pieces should be relatively small (6″x6″ max) and not have too many applique elements added to them as they can break off in this type of firing. The ware should not be bisque fired, only greenware. Simple work tends to be best. No pre-registration necessary.

This event is subject to cancellation based on fire guidelines at the time.
