KILNS

Mudflat has three new Bailey gas car kilns with electronic controls for both reduction and oxidation firing at high-fire cone 10: a 54 cubic foot; a 32 cubic foot, and an 18 cubic foot. The gas kilns can also be used for bisque firing. There are four electric kilns, three with computer controls, for bisque firing, low-fire cone 04 glaze firing, and mid-range cone 6 glaze firing.

SLAB ROLLER AND EXTRUDERS

Equipment for use for handbuilding techniques includes one slab roller and two extruders.

POTTERY WHEELS

Mudflat has 36 electric pottery wheels: 24 in the main wheel classroom and 12 in the small wheel classroom. Each wheel has an adjacent bench for use during throwing as well as a chair or stool in varying height. One wheel in each classroom can be positioned up on blocks for students who would prefer to throw standing rather than sitting.

SPRAY BOOTH

A ventilated spray booth is available for glaze application, with a spray gun and compressor.
