A special event to coincide with the closing of Throughlines Montsalvat Ceramic Exhibition!

Fire Sculptures is a fire ceremony and workshop about reclaiming and understanding materials in a careful and considered manner that respects the earth’s resources through means of clay, fire and water.

Learn from Yuri Wiedenhofer, kiln master of multiple successful sculptural kilns held at Bermagui, Gulgong and Jindabyne, NSW over the past twenty years.

You can join in and help Yuri create or you can simply watch the sculpture grow, smolder and take shape. Drop by anytime or stay for the whole day!

This ceremony of fire is designed for people aged 10 years and above, adults, potters, sculptors are all welcome. Children must be supervised by parents or responsible carers. We welcome those who love to enjoy a bit of flame in the cold winter skies!

Rain, hail or shine, this event will proceed. Be aware that this is an outdoor event, please dress appropriately for the weather.

Lunch is not provided. We recommend packing a picnic lunch or visiting the Boulevard Restaurant at Montsalvat for your coffee and food. Drinking water will be provided.

Bring your own gloves, gumboots or work boots and get down and dirty in shaping an anthill fire sculpture. Learn from one the best landscape fire sculptors and be inspired!
