Florida Heat Woodfire
January 3rd – 10th, 2018
Unloading the anagama on January 17th at 9:00am
The Morean Center for Clay anagama kiln was built in 2002 under the tutelage of Don Reitz. Join us as we spend three days loading about 1.000 pots into this 500 cubic foot wood kiln and another 4-5 days firing around the clock.
Participants will be learning how to fire this unique kiln with the nation’s top wood fire artists; John Balistreri, Chris Gustin, Nancy Train Smith and Matt Long. Every participant is encouraged to bring as much high fire bisqueware as they can bring to have fired in the anagama kiln. Participants should bring a wide variety of shapes and sizes of bisqueware. All participants will take part in loading, firing and unloading the anagama. In addition, there will be demonstrations and lectures by John, Chris, Nancy and Matt. This is a great hands on way to learn how to fire a wood kiln. Space is limited, so be sure to register early.
