Community Woodfire: Noborigama

Sign up now to experience the flash of the Baltimore Clayworks Noborigama! Your pots may take on a rich variety of colorful flashing and deposits from wood ash or salt depending on which chamber you choose.   We fire the wood chamber throughout Saturday into the evening, finishing the salt chamber Sunday morning which allows plenty of time for shared conversation and food.
