Equipment

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 and low-fire cone 04 glaze firing.

SLAB ROLLER AND EXTRUDERS

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

POTTERY WHEELS

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.

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