Kevin Crowe of Tye River Pottery fired the week of May 5, unloading on May 17. It was my first time on his crew with pots in the kiln and it was an amazing experience for me. An anagama with a noborigama connected on the back made this three chambered a kiln an entirely new firing experience for me. Each potter has his own firing style and each kiln, its own personality. I learned so much and will continue to do so with every firing to come. A potter's education is never finished. A few glimpses of the kiln and the firing:
My cup is feeling very full right now. Such lovely people, good conversation, good food, smooth firing, nice pots. Wood firing is one of my favorite things and this past month has been a gift with two firings. Now, to fill the kiln at my own studio! Images of new work to come shortly.
