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.

Signing Up For My First Wood Firing

I love wood fired pottery. This may seem strange for someone who loves raku so much but it's true.  It because in both forms you can see the effects of the firing so directly on the pots.  Each pot will have an element of surprise and every angle will look different.  The firing time span may be drastically different but the potters involvement is not.  So when I was told about the anagma firing at Hambidge next month I immediate wrote a check to I could get my pots into the kiln.  Of course I don't have those pots made just yet but that's not a problem, I'm just excited (one could say "stoked") at the possibility of being there and being involved.
I'm told that this firing may have a low attendance due to some potters being in school.  If you can make it to north Georgia during the beginning of Oct and would like to do some wood firing now's the time to sign up.

  1. I've never been to a wood firing, one of these days, have fun; I am sure you will.

  2. I'm sure I will have fun too. I'll be posting pictures and stories too, so stay posted.
