                    Description: Each piece will turn out with different patterns.  The fire of the burning hair, makes a unique design. They are pulled from the kiln one at a time, after being heated, strands of horsehair are quickly applied.  Seconds count here, and timing is critical.  If the piece is too cool, the hair will not burn at all.


                    Students may use other pet hair, feathers etc. Students may finish fired work by wrapping remainder of the hair around the piece.


                    To care for your piece simply wipe the piece gently with a clean soft, or very slightly damp cloth. Horsehair firing does not seal the ware completely and it should NOT be used for food or to hold liquids.


                    Horsehair fired pieces can occasionally be waxed with Johnson’s paste wax for furniture to refresh the finish.


                    A bisque fire piece is included in the price of this workshop.
