Sign up for Community Woodfire: Noborigama with Jeremy Wallace!

Sign up now to experience the flash of the Baltimore Clayworks Noborigama! Your pots may take on a rich variety of colorful flashing and deposits from wood ash or salt depending on which chamber you choose.   We fire the wood chamber throughout Saturday into the evening, finishing the salt chamber Sunday morning which allows plenty of time for shared conversation and food. 

Everyone will have an opportunity to choose shifts in preparation and during the firing process. Cost depends on the number of shares. One share constitutes kiln space equal to 12” x 12” x 54”.  Participants are encouraged to contact Baltimore Clayworks with questions regarding appropriate clay bodies, slips or glazes for use in the Noborigama.

Opportunities for Artists

Mary E. Nyburg Fund for Artist Development

OPENS February 1, 2022
DUE April 30, 2022

The Mary E. Nyburg Fund for Artist Development is an endowment fund begun in 2007 by friends and family of Mary Nyburg. Mary was a respected potter nationally, a crafts advocate, a board member of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, a life-long supporter of Baltimore Clayworks, where she was at one time a Resident Artist. Following Mary’s death in April 2006, a fund was created in her honor to award a stipend each year to allow a period of devoted study that would deepen an artist’s work in clay and also strengthen the Baltimore Clayworks community. The stipend, awarded to one artist annually, helps support travel, study, and/or work in a community outside of Baltimore. Once completed, the artist is required to conduct a presentation or workshop to share their experience with the Baltimore Clayworks community.


ELIGIBILITY This award is open to any Baltimore Clayworks artist. This includes associate artists (formerly member artists), former and current resident artists, alumni, visiting artists, teaching artists, springboard members, artists that are members or volunteers of Baltimore Clayworks. Priority is given to artists who are currently active in the Baltimore Clayworks community.

The mission of Baltimore Clayworks is to develop, sustain, and promote an artist-centered community that provides outstanding educational, residency, and collaborative programs in the ceramic arts.
Thank you to all of our artists, donors, and supporters.
