August 10-14th -

Architectural Ceramics with Peter King. We have also invited his wife,
Xinia Marin, renowned Costa Rican glaze guress, and hope she will be
able to join us. Peter is one of the pioneers of Studio Architectural
Ceramics. He produces elaborate fireplaces, archways, columns and
freestanding sculpture with vibrant ornate features on a scale viewers
are often unaccustomed to seeing in ceramics. His work can be found in
numerous public and private spaces throughout the US. This workshop
will delve into Cone 6 glazes in reduction as well as spray glazing
techniques for architectural work. We will also work on plaster cast
molds, some high relief construction, as well as hands on installation
of the fireplace made in the 2002 workshop. There will be an evening
potluck and slide show midweek. Cost $500.00

The workshop is being hosted in Orangevale, CA, about 20 minutes east of
Sacramento. For more information contact Morgan Britt, FireArt
