Over Thanksgiving Break we arranged a Community Salt Firing and invited students from the ceramics and sculpture departments to put work in the kiln and help with the firing. It was a great opportunity to work with our peers over the break, give thanks for our clay community, and have fun!

…. Many hands made lighter work.

    I honestly cannot believe this salt kiln is still standing. When I was at KCAI (98-02) we thought it was in its final days. Good to see your photos. Keep up the good work.
