WOODBURY HAS BEEN INVESTIGATING THE ARCHITECTURAL IMPLICATIONS OF CERAMICS FOR YEARS THROUGH CERAMIC DESIGN AND RESEARCH STUDIOS.NOW THE MAKING COMPLEX IS BEGINNING TO ADD EQUIPMENT AND SPACE TO AID IN THIS VALUABLE WORK.


PURPOSE

The ceramic tools suit a narrow interest, supporting a specific studio's needs - but also expand the services within the Making Complex. In addition to the clay tools, a glass kiln is open for the curious. The glass kiln is able to perform three operations: meld glass pieces together, tack fuse pieces together and slump glass onto molds.
