Special Anagama Firing

This was the 25th firing of Roger Jamison's anagama kiln. The big wood kiln takes several days to load and several more days to fire, followed by a week of cooling. Before each firing wood needs to be sourced, cut, split, and stacked. After each firing the shelves need to be scrapped clean and coated with kiln wash. It's a lot of work with no promise of good pots. But, since it is so much work, a bunch of potters get involved. So it's a lot of fun, and always worth the time and effort.

 
To commemorate the occasion of the twentyfifth firing Roger's wife designed and printed these great tee shirts for all the folks that participated. I think that's a really special way to remember the occasion. Besides the really pretty pots and visiting with our potter friends.
