CERAMICS STUDIO PART OF JAZZ AT THE SPRINGS

An exciting part of this Sunday afternoon at the Springs is the community firing of the Chester Springs Studio Wood Kiln.  Matt Wren, our Ceramics Studio Supervisor, will be on hand to discuss the wood kiln and its application to ceramics firing.  The process is a multiple day event including loading the kiln, the firing and then the unloading.  The kiln must be monitored constantly to maintain the proper temperatures and wood added to the fire to do so.  Our wood kiln is gaining recognition in the region and many other art studios are renting the kiln for their own firings.At the ceramics studio you will be able to see wheel throwing exhibitions.  We invite you to explore the art of ceramics and encourage you to consider signing up for a ceramics class in our summer session.  There are classes for beginners as well as experienced potters.  Let us help you find a class just for you.

We will also have an array of pottery that is available for purchase.  Our faculty and staff donate these wares and we have some extraordinary pieces for you to own.  All monies from the sales of this pottery will be used by the Ceramics Studio to support its work.
