Prototype by Ed Klein of Bur Oak Pottery.

This year’s Big BonFiring sculpture will be…

a rumpus-causing, wild thing of a monster, to the Max!

Be sure to go where the wild things are! See the eight-foot version of this monster all ablaze in its 1500 degree kiln at our Big BonFiring on Saturday, July 22 at 9:00 PM.

A special kiln has been created, and will be assembled on site the week before the Fire Fest. The kiln will surround an eight foot tall clay sculpture of a wild thing!

A fire will be burn in the kiln over the weekend, and at The Big BonFiring, Fire Festers will be able to see the sculpture revealed in a spectacular display of performance art.

But don’t blink – we can only open the kiln for about 15 minutes before we shut it back up for its final stage of firing and cooling.
