L-S High School Clay III students recently participated in a community wood firing at the Lancaster Creative Factory. Seniors Sofia Bua, Josie Lau, Taya Puffenberger, Kira Thomas, Jasmine Thompson, and Mary Torres spent two weekends loading, firing, and unloading a 74 cubic foot anagama wood kiln with a 21 cubic foot salt chamber. Each student entered about 5-6 pieces of their own work into the kiln. They spent a Saturday learning how to load the kiln and then returned the next day to fire the kiln by stoking and monitoring the temperature rise under the direction of L-S High School art teacher Meg Lau and artist Kevin Lehman. The students returned the following Saturday with Mrs. Lau to unload their work and see the amazing results!
