This book has just been released and focuses on kiln firing fir Raku, Pit, and Barrel plus high fire wood kilns. The galleries are full of beautiful work by many ceramic artists. I am excited to be included along with many others. One piece of mine is an Obvara pot with sodium silicate crackle surface and the other in an installation of terra cotta paper clay books pit fired during my residency at Archie Bray. I used the train kiln and a pit. The installation is a memorial piece for 9/11. Marcia
Occasionally I need to burn up some brush, dead fall, etc. I thought why waste a perfectly good fire! These two pieces made from raku clay and bisqued at 04 electric. I coated them with some copper based raku glaze. While I was piling up the brush, I just placed these two pieces in the middle of the pile and lit it. I then spent the next couple of hours running around the yard for more deadfall to keep the fire going. I got the pieces hot enough to melt the glaze and got a pretty good workout at the same time. Next time I'll try to have more burn stuff piled ready to go. The are the results!
