WEST SIOUX CERAMICS/DAKOTA POTTERS SUPPLY
FOR SCHOOLS OR INSTITUTIONS
Tom & Wanda Clarke of WSC/DPS are now offering on site raku workshops. These are make & take workshops. So, during the workshop bisque pieces will be glazed, fired, smoked, cooled and ready to take home in a matter of 2 or 3 hours.
1 or 2 day workshops work very well.
We have two raku kilns, so we fire at least 50 to 80 pieces of medium size (about 5" to 6" base, 6" to 12" Height) per eight-hour day. The average turn around time on a load is 1 to1½ hours. Additional firing is charged per piece over the maximum. This is usually an all day process. Weekday and weekend times are available. We can even fire into the night when needed.
(Host needs to supply)
Disposable gloves to protect hands during glazing.
Paper towels or hand towels.
Tables or work area to glaze on. (We prefer this be covered.)
Extra help for unloading, helping in pits & reloading.
Tom and Wanda Clarke of West Sioux Ceramics/Dakota Potters Supply have been in the Ceramic Industry for over 30 years. Through the years we have developed a special understanding of the needs of ceramists, potters & teachers. We enjoy working with our clients. Tom is an excellent potter and will gladly do a wheel demonstration during the workshop. WSC/DPS is now producing custom built Raku kilns.
Our "Fire Top" kilns are available in standard sizes or built to your specifications.
Allow 4 6 weeks for delivery.
