Design students will be introduced to the theories of designing, construction and firing knowledge of kilns. Students will design and build kilns focusing on firing atmospheres; including oxidisation, reduction, soda, wood, raku, gas, electric and reduced lustre.
Students will undertake research into the history of designs of the different kilns..
This course alternates over two years (even and odd years). Even years will explore low temperature kilns & firing techniques. Odd years will explore high temperature kilns and firing techniques.
Occupational health and safety instruction is an integral part of this course.
