Book Release Party!
Low-Fire Soda is now available. Justin wrote a book and because we're unable to host a book release party at our studio, we're having a virtual book release party. To celebrate with us follow on instagram and facebook on Monday, May 11 to learn about a book package giveaway.
We're also celebrating by listing a handful of mugs online at a special rate. Find them here.
After years of experimenting with earthenware in wood, soda, and salt kilns, Justin Rothshank has compiled all his know-how into this helpful guide. Low-Fire Soda is a start-to- finish resource that outlines everything from the different types of clay bodies to use, to decorating and glazing techniques, wadding and loading strategies, firing tips, post-firing ideas, and much more.
Whether you’re interested in learning about faster, more economical atmospheric firings, or you’re intrigued by the expanded color palette of low-fire clay materials, Low-Fire Soda has the information you need to start exploring low-temperature atmospheric rings. Justin also covers health and safety, recipes, and kiln firing strategies.
Five articles contributed by guest authors, along with helpful insights from practicing artists round out the book. Low-Fire Soda has a wealth of information for ceramic artists interested in learning more about the potential of soda at low temperatures. This book is published by Ceramic Arts Network.
