June Clay Club

Yo Clubbers,

The next Clay Club is Wednesday June 8, 2011  at David Voorhees studio!  Should be fantastic! Regular potluck food.  

He has offered to demo: throwing and altering as well as discuss the kiln and firing.  Also, if anyone else wants to demo just let me know and we can figure out the logistics..

David also invited each person bring a bisque fired cone 10 clay mug to be glazed here and fired in my June 25th firing.  I could bring the fired mugs to the July meeting. 

The Voorhees Pottery wood-fired car kiln, built in 2009 is possibly the only one of its kind in the USA. Stacking space about 60 cu. ft., cross draft design kiln with Bourry style fire box and built in pizza oven.  The kiln fires in about 28 hours using one cord of wood and 1 1/2 lbs. soda sprayed as solution at top temperature.  The kiln is located at David's home/studio Sunburst Hollow, 2212 Green River Rd., Zirconia, NC, 40 minutes south of Asheville.

Directions:  from Asheville take I-26 East to Exit 54, taking US 25 South toward Greenville, SC.  Follow to Exit 3, Green River Rd.  At end of ramp turn right and drive 2 miles to driveway on right.  Look for #2212 on post and mailbox.
