I’m a clay artist making sculptural work as well as functional pottery. I fire much of my work in the wood fired kiln I built a few years back. Firing this way is a great way to connect with other ceramists as it takes a crew four days of round the clock stoking to fire this way. The wood ash and atmosphere in the kiln creates surfaces unique to each firing.
