I threw this beauty with stoneware and applied wax resist before glazing it with two shino glazes. It found a special spot in my most recent anagama firing. The copper and iridescence on this pot is really amazing. It's simply magical!

It stands 7-1/2" tall and is 5-1/2" in diameter and would make a lovely gift for someone special.

*****************************************************************************
WOOD FIRING: It all begins with chopping many cords of wood! It takes a team of potters, friends and/or family to fire a wood kiln. The first day or two is devoted to loading the kiln then sealing the various chambers. Once the fire is started stoking continues at regular intervals over the next 2-3 days depending on the desired temperature. The kiln demands constant attention and it takes an incredible amount of time and energy to achieve temperature and desired results. It's a non-stop workout until temperature is achieved and it is this process that accounts for the typically higher price of wood fired pots.

During the firing process the continual addition of wood causes the temperature to rise and ash to fly. As ash settles on the pottery it melts forming a natural glaze. Ash also combines with glazes creating gorgeous variations in color, texture, and surface thickness. The outcome varies from smooth and glossy to roughly textured and gnarly. Placement in the kiln, density and nearness of other pots, and oxidation and/or reduction environments all affect the outcome of each pot. It is rare to find two identical pieces of pottery from a wood fired kiln.
