From July 2 to July 14, I was once again in France to teach a wood-fired ceramics and glassblowing workshop at Domaine de Boisbuchet. This year the workshop was titled “Vitrification” and I co-taught it with British designer Max Lamb and Tom Ryder from the Corning Museum of Glass.
Kiln heating up to temperatures needed to fire stoneware and porcelain and to blow glass. The firebox on the side is for the attached wood-fired annealing chamber used to slow cool the glass shapes.
