The course "Recreating Ancient Greek Ceramics" fired its replica ancient kiln last night (April 8th) under the watchful eye of master potter and kiln master Matthew Hyleck. We went from 52 degrees F to 1750 degrees F in 11 hours with surprisingly little wood and a fair amount of hope that our pots will survive the firing AND come out both red and black. Wish us luck for the opening of the kiln tomorrow night!

In the last week, we've finished painting our replicas of ancient Greek cups, assembled our replica ancient Greek kiln, and stacked all the vessels and tiles inside. Tomorrow (April 8th) is the day of truth--we begin firing in an attempt to make our red pots go red and black!
