  • Jan Rodwell The Pott-Pitt 02 66542457 Woolgoolga NSW claygirl@tpg.com.au

    I teach both handbuilding and wheel forming. I also hold Pit-fire, raku and kiln building workshops as the need arises.

    With my hand-built forms I try to capture a natural flowing form and either burnish highly and spray with oxides, or if I glaze I like to let the glaze decorate the piece with the same natural flow. The beauty imparted by the reduction in the pit-firing process is a constant mystery of magic to me. My dinnerware is hand-thrown, I tend either very rounded forms or very symmetrical, with minimal decoration. Designs are ever evolving, and I enjoy the design and experimental process.

    mch@mighty.net Trail, Oregon, box 94, 97541
    I have been making pots and building kilns for 30 years. Presently I am making early American reproduction salt-fired stoneware (cone 11). My primary glaze is an oak ash that is just beautiful. I am willing to share what I have learned with interested parties. Twenty years of salting, 0ver a hundred kilns built, equipment making, clay forming, a bunch of ways to cheat the "ceramic rule book", on and on etc. etc.

    Is anyone interested in helping to build a large, long, Korean type of Tamba kiln, or commonly called a "split-bamboo kiln" we will be laying down a cone-11 flat with wood. The design stakes are in the ground and plans drawn. This is the type of kiln that is fired from small ports along the top of the dragons spine. Lots of ash deposition and flashing. Look up "Tamba, one of the seven ancient kilns of Japan" There is a clay deposit on my land that will make kiln blocks for building and I have hundreds of acres of fire-wood waiting for the sacrament of a stoneware fire. Please send some feedback.

  • Margaret Boozer Red Dirt Studio 202 588-9830 Washington DC boozer@zzapp.org
    The Seminar at Red Dirt Studio: I teach an advanced seminar on sculpture and ceramics in my studio. The seminar addresses a small group of self-directed potters and sculptors who wish to participate in a collective work/study/critique environment. We make things, think critically, talk, problem-solve, pool resources, and generate good creative energy. We address the making of art and the business of art. I am a ceramic sculptor, showing locally, nationally and internationally. My work is in the permanent collection of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian. I’ve taught at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and currently teach at Gallaudet University.
