Soda Firing Earthenware with Justin Rothshank

In this video, we joined Justin Rothshank at his home studio in Goshen, Indiana, to prepare for, load, fire, and unload his low fire soda kiln. Justin covers everything from his decorative techniques leading up to the firing, to the placement of pots inside the kiln, to unloading and analyzing results. He even shares some post firing techniques for enhancing results! It’s the perfect complement to his book Low-Fire Soda!
