Wood Fire Kiln at Fortress Studios

Teaming up with our friends at Fortress Studios, SHC students and members will get a chance to fire some pieces in Detroit's Noborigama wood fire kiln "The Salty Dog" this summer. Stoking the fire for close to 40 hours, the kiln will get up to 2400 degrees (Cone 10). Wood firing gives rich earth tones and unique glaze patterns depending on all the variables involved: clay body, glazes, temperature, kiln atmosphere, etc.
