Hood’s Ceramics Program has just completed the first firing in one of the three kilns built this summer and is now ready to build another! The newest addition will be a small, hybrid cross-draft, gas and wood kiln that will introduce soda. Soda firing is widely considered a modern-day nontoxic replacement for salt firing.
The kiln-building experience is an exciting opportunity for ceramics students to explore different methods of firing, a vital step in the creative process. Join the construction crew on October 16-18 and 23-25, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Register here or call 301-696-3456.
