CANCELED – The Ceramics Series – “The History of Salt Firing” with Kira Campbell

April 29 @ 10:00 AM

NOTE: This event has been canceled

Delhom Service League welcomes Kira Campbell, ceramic artist and instructor, who will give a brief history of salt firing. Salt firing is a process where unglazed ware is fired to high temperatures and salt is introduced into the kiln chamber to achieve a characteristic ‘orange peel’ glazed surface.

Kira has an undergraduate degree in theater and her MFA in ceramics from the University of Michigan, where she studied under Georgette Zirbes and Sadashi Inuzuka. She has been working in clay for over twenty years, and has experience ranging from production pottery to university instruction to large-scale installation art. Kira has participated in residencies in Denmark, Hungary and Ireland and has work in several international museums. While her exhibited work is all sculptural, she enjoys exploring the vessel in all its forms whenever possible. She is currently an instructor at Clayworks in Charlotte.

(there will not be a reception before this program, so it will begin promptly at 10:00 AM)
