Inspired by the shape of bamboo I threw this jar with a stoneware clay body and gave it a pointy lid. I used wax resist on the front and stylized an image of bamboo. It has a single shino glaze and received lots of wonderful wood ash during the firing to give it that gorgeous lustre, speckles, and coloration from auburn to blue-gray.

It was fired in an anagama kiln to cone 12 (approx. 2400 degrees F.) and stands 8-1/2" tall. Should you choose to fill it, it will hold 2 and 1/2 cups.

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. 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. Ash settles on the pottery and 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.
