The technique of Raku pottery happens when art is removed from a gas kiln at around 1800 degrees with gloved hands and tongs lifted from burning flame, dropped into a metal container with combustibles. The glaze crackles from the heat of the flame.

Ceramic artists form their art using clay and prominent, striking glazes that are fired in a kiln numerous times. Exciting, magnificent colors are produced when glazes are applied to bisque clay, re-fired up to 2300 degrees in a red hot kiln.

Encaustic wax is an age old process using hot wax and oils. Hot wax painting involves beeswax to which colored pigments are added and kept molten on a heated palette. After being applied to an absorbent surface, you create an original piece of art. The fun part of encaustic wax is adding mixed media inclusions, photos or any absorbent material. The possibilities are endless.

A metal artist using a welding torch combines the cool metal pieces to the heat of the torch to create sculptures or functional pieces such as lamps and furniture. Some of our paper artists brandish the edges of their finished assemblages to give them an aged antique look as the heat of the flames burns the edges.

Jewelry artists achieve an individual look in their pieces by using heat. When jewelry is connected together with a soldering tool the heat presses against the cool metal to join the pieces. A different patina is created with flame and various chemicals used make each piece a unique form of art to wear.

Artists that work with various woods can create a very different effect with a selected branding or engraving tool. The wood branded with the heat tool will then achieve an interesting design or sometimes a personalized engraving. The finished piece has a special look that compliments the wood used.

 

"Cool Jazz" Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

“Cool Jazz” Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

Our glass artists use various techniques such as glass formed with the HOT flame of a torch, glass blowing, casting and fused glass in a kiln firing. Fused glass is one of the oldest, sophisticated techniques in hot glass sometimes referred to as “warm glass”. It is an exciting interplay of light and color to look in the glowing red hot kiln and see the soft molten liquid melting together in brilliant form.

One of the biggest thrills of firing a kiln is fifteen hours later when the artist opens the kiln lid and views the fascinating and extraordinary design that has emerged! Due to the handcrafted nature of many techniques used and the multiple series of kiln firings at temperatures ranging from 1200 to 2300 degrees, this makes ceramics and glass one of a kind art  – where no two pieces are ever alike.
