Aside

Well, it’s official…. I am fully addicted to Wood Firing. I love the whole process from meeting new interesting people to staying up all night keeping the fire going and finally unloading the kiln and discovering some amazing results. Aside form building the pieces, firing the kiln is an art in itself. The way the fire moves though the kiln depositing ash on soft curves and the extreme heat then melts the ash to a glass glazing the pot in beautiful patterns formed by the natural movement of fire and ash through the kiln.

The kiln we used here belongs to Tony Moore of Cold Spring, NY. It is an Anagama  – Noborigama Kiln and it is beautiful. I am already excited to get started on pieces for the next   firing in June!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

It’s official…
