    KC Clay Guild Board Nomination Deadline

    GET INVOLVED! Elections are coming! 

    Would you like to be more involved in the running of the KC Clay Guild?

    Interested in serving on a not-for-profit board?

     

    How it works: Per our bylaws, we elect 10 board members and, once elected, those ten Board members determine who fills what roles. The new board would sit from May 2018 through April 2019. Positions include:

    • President
    • Vice President
    • Treasurer
    • Secretary
    • Building Maintenance Chair
    • Publicity Chair
    • Educational Chair
    • Workshops and Events Chair
    • Gallery Chair
    • Membership Chair

     

    What's involved in serving on the board? We ask that you attend monthly board meetings (approximately 2 hours per month), join or lead at least one committee (such as Raku, Building Improvements, TeaBowl National, Spring Sale, etc.) and volunteer at no less than three other clay guild events (i.e. volunteer Sunday, plaza art fair outreach, raku night, etc.) It varies by position but most board positions require a commitment of at least 6-10 hours per month. 

     

    If interested, please send your photo and responses to the following questions to: kccgstudio@gmail.com

    1) Why are you interested in serving on the KC Clay Guild Board?

    2) Describe your skills, experience, and interests and how you might put it to use as a KC Clay Guild Board Member.

    Second Sunday Pottery Class is a one time class that introduces students to the potter's wheel. 

     This casual three hour adult class will give you enough time to try out throwing clay and make a few small pieces. 

    During the class, the students will focus on making pieces and having fun.  Our staff will fire and glaze your pieces once the pieces are fired.  We will have a handful of glazes to choose from at the end of class.  The pieces will be ready to pick up two weeks after the class. 

    The class is limited to 8 students to ensure that each student has enough time with the instructor. 

    Students are welcome to bring food and drink to enjoy during the class. 

    Preregistration required for this class.  No refunds.  If you can not make it to the class, we can transfer your registration to a different month with advance notice.  

    Contact studio@kcclayguild.org with any questions.

    Open Studio Soda Firing, January 23rd, 2019

    Pieces must be dropped off by January 20th, 2019

    -pieces must be boxed (we usually have extra clay boxes available)

    -please label the box with your name

    Please read the following carefully before registering:

    This will be the first soda firing that will be open to those who would like to drop off pieces and have them fired, similar to firing cone 10 pieces currently.

    Space in the kiln will be sold by the shelf.  Each shelf of the kiln is roughly 12"x24"x7". For example, this is enough space for roughly 10 mugs. Pieces in a soda kiln have to be spaced somewhat far apart, so this shelf space will fill quickly. Tall pieces will be fired on their side unless glazed or noted otherwise.

    The cost of a shelf in the kiln is $35.  

    Participants in the firing have the option of using Louis Reilly's custom soda fire clay body (available from the monitor for $25 per 25 pounds) or can use their normal cone 10 stoneware or porcelain.

    Pieces made from the soda fire clay will only need to be glazed on the inside of the pot.

    Pieces made from porcelain, B-Mix, or stoneware could be left bare on the outside of the pot or glazed on the outside of the pot. Results will vary, will typically be quite shiny and might have some interesting colors.

    Glazes change a lot in the soda kiln. Celadon, shino, chun, and tenmoku are the glazes that will do the best in the kiln.

    You may register for more than one shelf by adding a 'guest' to your registration.

    All of the pieces will be distributed throughout the kiln - we won't be putting all of your work on the same shelf. Doing this makes sure that all of your pots don't turn out the same or end up on a shelf in the kiln that doesn't turn out well. 

    We will do our best to get great results on this firing. Not every piece will turn out perfectly, this is the nature of soda firing. If you have pieces that you want to be fired again, you will have to pay for another shelf in an upcoming firing.

    The cost of this firing is based on the labor involved in loading, firing, unloading and cleaning up each firing. The $35 per shelf price is in line with other organizations that provide soda firing services. 

    Do not hesitate to ask us any questions about the firing:
