Randy Brodnax, a life-long potter and educator from Dallas, Texas, promises to entertain as he shares with participants his experiences in firing everything from functional dinnerware to large decorative vessels. A Louisiana native, who has retained much of the Cajun joie de vivre with which he was raised, Randy has spent a career building bridges among clay artists of all levels of experience. He will help participants seeking a refined focus, new direction, or simply camaraderie among clay artists.
Each day will feature a different decorative process and firing technique. Participants will explore the dynamic potential of lichen glazes, copper flashing, and oxide application. Pieces will be fired with a range of high-fire and low-fire techniques, including wood and gas-fired raku, saggar pits, and sawdust reductions. Kiln construction and firing instructions will also be emphasized.
