At The Pottery Mill, we host events open for our members, classes and surrounding communities. From sales to smashing pottery, we hope you'll join us!
What is a smash bash? Well, it’s in the name! We take some old & left behind pottery, lay out a couple canvas drop cloths and throw our pots against a brick wall! It is full of smashing, laughs and yummy food! Our first smash bash in September of 2020 was a huge success, our members helped us bash hundreds of pieces by throwing, pitching and batting pottery against a wall out in our parking lot. Depending on how much pottery we accrue over the year, we have plenty of boxes to buy and smash! The Smash Bash is a fantastic event and a charitable one, we raised and donated a portion of the profit to local charities, and will continue to do so!
Raku Firings- We’re taking this a little old school with our raku firings! What is a raku firing? Well, in short it is a specialty firing- much more than placing your pieces in the kiln and waiting 24 hours to see your results. We take glazed bisqueware, place it in our raku, bring the temperature up to about 1800 degrees (F) and remove them at that temperature! While glowing hot, they are picked up with tongs and placed into a metal receptacle full of combustible material-newspaper, grass clippings, horse hair, etc. The finish of a raku firing is a truly, unique, one-of-a-kind surface that you can simply not achieve in other firings! Our raku firings take place on private property and our day is full of hanging out, yard games, food and beverages as we await the kiln’s temperature to rise!
