The Buzz over the new Kiln Build

The enthusiasm over the building of our new ‘sweet’ kiln that one person can fire or a group, with wood effects or full-blown ash, has spread from the West coast of Canada to Denmark!  There are now only three places left in the workshop.  If you or anyone you know is interested, do not wait.  The workshop goes from June 21-30 and that includes a firing and the cooling of the kiln.  Lots of hard work and great rewards and an opportunity to learn from Markus Boehm.   So happy to have him on board.  The cost is $325.  Does not include accommodation or meals or travel to Winnipeg.  Will include a few smaller pieces fired in the kiln.  They must be cone 10 clay and arrive bisque.  No glaze.  We supply the glaze.

My creative life has many facets. I am a Professor of Ceramics and Art History at the School of Art, University of Manitoba. I write for a number of ceramic journals including Studio Potter, Art and Perception, Ceramics Technical, New Ceramics, and Ceramics Monthly. My research focuses on historical and contemporary Canadian woodfiring and, in particular, the marginalization of women. This year I have presented papers on the topic of the marginalization of women within the field of ceramics at the Third European Wood Fire Conference in La Borne, France, and the Creative Women Conference at the University of Guelph.
