Pottery, Wood Fired

The woodfired surface is a huge reason that I got into pottery. The process often involves a community of potters working for 3-6 day long firings.  Wood is stoked into the kiln and combusts into flame, ashes and coals, which consumes the pottery and naturally paints the raw clay surfaces.   This process influences all of my glazeware.

  1. Joel,

    I’m sorry I missed your show today. I saw $5 pots and really was torn that I couldn’t come. I want to browse your stuff for wedding favors for my groomsparty (not until next June so I have some time). I am re-considering my teaching angle and wish I could make it as an artist of some sort. I’m happy that you are still making pottery. I’ll let you know if I’m coming up to SJU and let me know if you are coming to the cities.

    Best,

    David Johnson
