a four day salt-fire workshop intensive
Learn from the man who built our salt kiln, Florida clay artist and kiln builder Ted Camp...
Ted received his BA from College of Wooster, Ohio and his MFA in ceramics at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. Ted served as professor and chair of The State College of Florida, Bradenton and also taught in the Summer Six art program at Skidmore College. Upon retirement from The State College of Florida, Ted was named Resident Artist, "which means that while the responsibilities and the paycheck will be gone, he gets to stick around to use the department's equipment while returning his attention to his art." His work is currently on exhibit at L'attitude Gallery, Boston, Symmetry Gallery, Saratoga Springs and Craftsman HouseGallery, St. Petersburg, FL. In addition, Ted is currently on the Board of Directors at Artcenter Manatee where he also teaches ceramics classes.
We are very pleased to have Ted here to lead this workshop. Everyone will benefit from his many years of kiln building and salt-firing experience. Participants will be introduced to the chemistry involved in salt firing through an exploration of the use of slips and glazes, the strategy of proper kiln loading and the salt-fire process.
Each participant is required to bring up to 12, Cone 10, bisque-ware pieces to be glazed and fired during the workshop.
