It's been a long time since I've had a good salt firing. It probably dates back 40 years when the second chamber of the noborigama was the wood salt chamber. I used these slips way back when. I took the General Purpose White Slip Cone 4-12 from Robin Hopper's Book and super saturated the oxides.

My pal and fellow potter Brian Nettles and I are offering a wood fired salt glaze potters workshop at his amazing studio in Pass Christian, Mississippi forty minutes from New Orleans.
Brian has developed his own amazing colour palette for salt so between the two of us we should be able to knock your socks off. Not only is this a salt firing but a wood salt firing which just adds more jam to the sandwich.
Here are the goods on the workshop! C y'all in The Deep South!
