Gallery 2: Wood Fired Work
My goal is
to make wood fired pottery that is sophisticated in
design and has wonderful colour and texture when fired.
My wood fired pottery is fired for 30-32 hours in a wood
fired train kiln using approximately a cord of wood and
stoked every 5 to 10 minutes. Each pot is marked by the
fire with results unattainable by any other firing
method. Blemishes from the firing are considered part of
the pot�s character and sometimes are referred to as a
kiss from the kiln.
This pottery is fired to cone 11 and is fully functional
and appropriate for daily use.
