Here's a look inside the kazegama kiln (post-firing). You can see all the ash buildup within the kiln, especially along the kiln floors. Ash fuses to clay surfaces and becomes a glaze, sealing the clay. Pieces are still quite hot, so gloves are needed.
Now listed in my shop: my latest batch of kazegama fired pitchers! I absolutely love wood fired surfaces, ash glaze build up, and the color variances that often result from wood firings...but the kazegama is as close as I can get.

About

I like to clay.

I'm a full-time husband/father and clay enthusiast. I've been working with clay since about 2002 when I chose to fill a gap in my schedule at Cal State Fullerton with an elective art course. Under the guidance of Vincent Suez and Tate Rich, I was taken through the clay process and a lifelong obsession had been gained. Additional local classes (with instruction by Roberto Carrillo, Laura M Haight, and Garrett Stryker) along with attendance at workshops (lead by Christa Assad, Ramon Camarillo, Ben Carter, Tom Coleman, Steve Davis, Adam Field, Robin Hopper, David MacDonald, Kate Maury, and Lisa Naples) have helped to influence these skills. I currently teach a wheel throwing class at the Irvine Fine Arts Center, where I was also a former ceramics technician.

The vast majority of my work is unique, one-of-a-kind. Occasionally, I may make a series of pieces but that doesn't happen too often. Unless noted otherwise, all of my work is fired in a gas kiln (cone ten reduction), made with food-safe clays and glazes, and is microwave and dishwasher safe. Personally, I highly recommend hand washing handmade ceramic ware, but that's just my preference.

As my shop is somewhat new, I'm not entertaining custom or wholesale orders...yet. If you like my work and are interested in a commission, please contact me first. Who knows? You might be able to change my mind.

As a final note, due to my busy schedule with family and work (and clay when I can wedge it in), my standard packing and shipping turnaround time is set at 3-5 days. I don't anticipate taking any longer than this to pack and ship orders, but I will let you know if I manage to beat that. In regards to shipping, I provide estimated costs. If actual shipping costs are significantly different, I will contact you regarding this. Also, if you're local to Orange County, CA (or near enough) please contact me regarding the possibility of local pick-up. Perhaps we can arrange something.

Again, I appreciate that you have taken the time to read this! I'm excited to share my work with you and look forward to the possibilities here. Come back and visit. I may be running a seasonal promotion and/or sale from time to time.

    I do it all. I personally create, decorate, photograph, upload, pack and ship all my work. My current focus is on utilitarian ware. I embrace the idea of ceramics being put to good use and serving a purpose.
