Kiln Area Views

GLAZE  ROOM: This room is used for mixing and application of glazes, and is equipped with a spray booth, a slot-hood ventilation system, and a slip mixing table, in addition to storage and work areas.
MOLD ROOM: This room is reserved for plaster mixing, and it also houses a power sprayer for silk-screen cleaning as well as a sand-blasting booth.
CLAY MIXING ROOM: This area serves for general bulk material storage as well as clay mixing, and the room features a powerful ventilation system for safety.
KILN AREA: This includes both a covered outdoor area which houses most of the kilns, and an adjacent area which is walled in but exposed, and which is the site for our raku and wood/salt kilns now in progress.
GENERAL STUDIO AREA:  This is the area where classes are held.  There are 18 potters wheels, extruders, a slab roller, and plenty of tables for work space.  Individual studios for advanced and grad students line the perimeter of the room (these are11 X 8 feet in size, and usually house one grad student or 1-3 advanced students).
