We are proud to have a Japanese-style wood-fired Anagama Kiln being built in late August under the direction of Professor John Baymore and constructed by his BFA kiln building class.  This large wood kiln will be a new and wonderful creative resource to the region with a launch of its first firing in the Fall of 2014.

Insight, and its priciples will be presented. Troubleshooting

of fired results, “food-safe” qualities, health and safety,

legal requirements, and ventilation concepts will also be

Students are encouraged, but not required, to bring

Kilns: Why and How

Sharon Art Center Campus of New Hampshire Institute of Art

 

Professor John Baymore

 

This one day seminar-type workshop will provide participants

and firing operations that they can bring back to their own

studio operations. The presented material will cover underlying

concepts that drive kiln function and operation, and how

that information relates to designing, constructing, and firing

them. This module will also assist participants in evaluating

commercial units for potential purchase. Presentations will

touch on gas, wood, and electric fired kilns, giving a diverse

audience some practical tools. Useful handouts and a copy of

one kiln plan will be provided to all participants.

Technical Forum F. A. Q. Listing (Frequently Asked Questions)

22 February 2014 - 11:23 AM

This FAQ thread will slowly over time be populated with links to past threads that address questions or subjects that repeatedly come up in the Technical forum section.  It will be a locked thread, so you will not be able to post directly into it. 

 

The number one topic list was easy to pick..... you can see from the number of threads on this subject.

 

I hope this is useful to you all.  ...........john
