Kissed By The Flame

Some pots are quiet, they don’t speak of carving or imagery. This one didn’t even speak of glaze colors or designs. Sometimes it’s a good idea to listen to the quiet. That would probably have been a better name for this post, maybe it’s the name of the vase. With nothing but a spearmint liner glaze, this piece was placed in the soda kiln. It’s about 11 inches tall so it was put in the top with a sculpture and a few other tall pieces. The soda and the flame did the decoration.

The vase is still very quiet but I think it came out well. I’m pleased with the painting the soda and flame did.

Anagama After The Storms

As you may know Rome, Georgia was one of the towns that got hit hard in the recent tornado outbreak.  I saw on the news that Shorter University lost some trees but I wasn't able to get much information about what happened at the anagama until I went up there.
This is what I found when I arrived

Giving a scale of how large the tree was

Can you tell how close the tree is to the kiln shed?
This huge oak came down and took at least 3 other trees with it. 
The good news is that Ian & James are ok, as is the kiln and having enough firewood should be no problem for the next firing.
