Throwing, Spraying and ^6 Electric Firing Workshop with Steven Hill

Throwing, Spraying and ^6 Electric Firing
Workshop with Steven Hill
In this 3-day workshop, you will learn the spraying and layering techniques that gives Steven Hill Pottery its’ unique look. You will work in Steven Hill’s studio, using his glazes and his spray guns and you will receive coaching directly from Steven…

On the first day, Steven will discuss his philosophy on making pottery, while throwing, assembling and applying slip to the forms and techniques that he is well known for. The focus will be on spouts, handles, form, surface, and the relationship between these elements. Steven will demonstrate pitchers, bowls, mugs and yunomis.

Day 2 will be glazing day. In the morning Steven will address ways to achieve the kind of richness and surface variation in electric kilns that potters have come to associate with reduction / atmospheric firing. The basic techniques of spraying and the more advanced theories of layering and blending glazes will be explained and demonstrated. In the afternoon students will glaze their pots. After pots are glazed we will load kilns and fire overnight at ^6 – 8 oxidation.

On day 3 there will be technical lectures on spraying techniques, equipment, firing cycles, and further experimentation. Finally we will end up by unloading the kilns and discussing the results.
