How fortunate to have again studied with Randy Brodnax!!! Randy is a life-long potter and educator from Dallas, Texas, who entertains as he shares with his experiences in firing everything from functional dinnerware to large decorative vessels. A Louisiana native, who has retained much of the Cajun joie de vivre with which he was raised, Randy has spent a career building bridges among clay artists of all levels of experience. He helps participants to seek a refined focus, a new direction, or simply camaraderie among clay artists.
Our group was able to explore different decorative processes and firing techniques. We explored the dynamic potential of lichen glazes, copper flashing, and oxide application. We fired with a range of high-fire and low-fire techniques, including wood and gas-fired raku, saggar pits, and sawdust reductions. Our greatest acheivement was to build a glow worm kiln and lasting connections with each other.
Roadrunner ceramics will continue to work hard to offer instruction and fellowship among artist featuring alternative firing. How blessed we are.
