Join the East Creek Anagama firing crew in firing your pots for 5 days and nights in Willamina, OR. Each firing will be led by experienced wood fire-ers and provide the opportunity to learn, connect, and serve your inner pyro. Sign up for your chance to participate in January's firing!
This reduction-cooled firing of the anagama will result in a more intense color palette than other firings, and the interruption of smooth glassy surfaces with textured, glittery, tectonic surfaces. While these surfaces are beautiful, be aware that they may exhibit some roughness or reduced functional qualities.
Your Pots: Due to limited space, we are currently only letting members purchase 1CF each. If there is space available closer to the firing date, we will allow members to purchase additional CF.
Loading: Your bisque fired pieces must arrive at East Creek by 9:30am on Saturday, January 9. Opportunities for Oortland drop off and for in person delivery will be available. In case of COVID escalation, a pickup service may be established. The OPA will help to organize these logistics for each firing.
The firing: You'll have the opportunity to visit the firing Jan. 13 - 18. An online scheduling mechanism will be available.
Your finished pots: Unloading will take place on Saturday, January 30. An online scheduler will be available to participants for socially-distanced pickup times.
This offering is available for OPA members only.
