Salt-Soda Firing Series
with Gordon Hutchens
A two program series that explores in detail the making, decorating
and firing of pots using salt and/or soda firing methods. Gordon Hutchens
has worked with salt and soda-firing methods since studying with Don
Pilcher and Don Rietz while attending the University of Illinois in
the late 1960's. His work has been exhibited widely in North America
The series includes the following two programs which can be purchased

"Straight forward, unpretentious videos that communicate a lot of information....
well organized with strong production values.... makes all the 'how-to'
books seem hopelessly inadequate."
(Contact, No. 107)
"As usual with Tara Productions, the technical work is excellent....
"This two video set on salt-soda firing will be an excellent introduction
and give the base for a working potter or instructor to actually do it and
as Gordon Hutchens continually exudes—enjoy. For libraries serving an advanced
art program.... get this set; it will be well worth it."
