-We have 2 small kilns which are adequate for a reasonable amount of work to be created by each student. -We don’t have the storage space and the capacity for firing large volumes of work. Students are limited to one large work per term, the size of the work should be discussed with the tutor. -Clay is supplied at a very reasonable price for pottery students. We are not a production facility for commercial ware. -We do not fire any student works that have been made outside of class time. -We only fire to Earthenware temperatures and use brush on glazes.
Janine Flew has a Diploma in Ceramics and has been obsessed with pottery since she first began classes at NSCC eight years ago. She likes the tactile nature of clay, the many ways that it can be shaped and decorated, the technical challenges of glazing and firing, and the absorbing nature of making. When not messing about with clay, she works in museum publishing.
