  • Clay choice for cone 10 firing
  • Forms for atmospheric firing
  • Decoration to enhance your work
  • Flame impact on work during firing
  • To glaze or not to glaze
  • Wadding
  • Loading, firing, and unloading the kiln

Students in this class will be prepared to take part in a woodfiring at Monocacy River Pottery in April. Contact Janet Greer at if you have questions. The firing fee at Monocacy River is determined according to the amount of work fired.
