One Friday per month from 6–9 p.m., groups gather to turn pottery into works of art. Participants can choose a piece of pre-made pottery at the facility, schedule to make their own pottery by the Tuesday before the firing, or bring in a piece from home to glaze and fire. The raku style of firing is a multistep process that involves heating the glazed pottery with a type of propane-fired kiln, then flame-firing it before giving it a water-bath. All materials are included. See the next available date here.<p>
The pottery lining the shelves inside Mighty Mud almost looks like it could have come from an archaeological excavation. With glaze jobs that call to shabby-chic sensibilities or enhance they clay’s hand-worked grooves, each work would be at home either on a windowsill or in a museum. The fun begins when it comes time to make these pieces. Mighty Mud offers classes that teach students how to throw clay, operate a pottery wheel, and build figures by hand. Kids even get their own set of classes catered just to them, and group raku firings happen once a month when the firing process is turned into a group BYOB activity.
