We are so excited to collaborate with East Creek for a 2 part wood firing workshop starting in March! Start with 2 making days at Radius Studio in Portland, then join the firing of the historic, 40 foot East Creek Anagama wood fired kiln on 20 forest acres in the coastal mountains of Oregon, 60 miles SW of Portland.

Joe will lead a discussion and overview about the wood firing process, will show some work from the kiln and firing considerations, and share a series of making demos to get you ready to fire. You’ll have over a month to make work and then, travel to the beautiful East Creek property May 9-17 to participate in firing the 40 foot wood kiln, as well as participate in pit and raku firings.

You will get 2 cubic feet of space in the wood kiln, 2 cubic feet of raku space, and 2 cubic feet of pit firing space. For all pieces made during making/ demo portion of the workshop Radius can bisque fire for an addition charge but all wood firing supplies and materials provided. During the month of making in preparation for the firing you can make work at your personal studio, other community art studios or join Radius as an Hourly Member. You’ll be provided a gourmet meal on Friday May 15, and are welcome to camp on the East Creek property at no charge. The firing is concurrent with the 2020 NW Wood Firing Conference (NWWFC.com), so a variety of artists, students, and educators from around the country will be present at the firing.
