Take your skills to the next level with an exciting intensive workshop for the advancing ceramicist. Bring your own bisque pots, and learn to fire them with the naked raku technique, copper matte, salt sagger, down-draft barrel and more exotic alternative firing techniques. A true pottery smorgasbord with two fantastic, lifelong artist instructors. Not to be missed!
Randy Brodnax is originally from Louisiana and now one of the best-known potters in Texas. He has specialized in Raku using natural imagery and drawing upon a fantasy world of creatures of the mind. He’s a very inventive and intuitive technician and a master of the art of kiln building. Randy's instruction is lively, entertaining, insightful, and always fun.
Don Ellis hails from Farmington, New Mexico, and has perfected his innovative approach to functional pottery and glazing over 30 years. He’s a master of alternative firing with degrees in education and Ceramics from McMurry University and the University of North Texas. Don returned to McMurry University to chair the art department for 8 years. Don, his wife Donna, and son Dalton, operated Cloudcroft Pottery for 20 years.
Snacks and drinks are included. You’ll bring along your own bisque pieces to fire. Detailed instructions and tips for bisque will be provided at registration. This should be an exciting and informative workshop.
