The finished Clay Sculpture can be no thicker then 3/4 of an inch for firing. Any thicker and the chance that it might explode or break in the firing process are greatly increased. There for the "Lobotomy" or cutting open and carving out of the piece is very important. This video demonstrates part of the process.

IF YOU ARE INTO THE ARTS, Yreka Institute for the Arts is a place you will enjoy. This organization had been created to make available a positive art environment. The Arts come first. Too many places in the past have had the Arts as an add on. When things get tough the Arts get dumped. Not Here. Enjoy the links that describe our activities and events. Come join with us and experience Art as number "1". We have classroom space, studio space, performance space, and out door spaces to sit and enjoy the Yreka atmosphere.
