Announcement   WELCOME

I would like to Thank you for visiting my shop. I enjoy my craft and it is my pleasure to share it with you. If you like my shop, please be sure to subscribe to my RSS feed https://www.etsy.com/shop/tcwoodfire/rss this will help keep you informed of any new listings and shop updates before anyone else! I am very active in my shop and add new items frequently, so please stop by again.

I am a Ceramic Artist living and working in Maine. In 2006 my father John Cichocki and I constructed a one hunderd and eighty cubic foot cross draft wood fired Kiln. This ' groundhog' Kiln is based on southern style Kilns of North America and is the only one of its kind in Maine.

Wood firing lends itself to the creation of a natural ash glaze wich is acheived at extremely hot temperatures over several days. In a atmospheric firing such as the wood kiln, peices recieve firebox effects from the clay reacting to its atmosphere, rich with salts and other minerals from the wood. Duration of flame passing through the ware creates directional flame patterns. Each fired piece will be unique because of the placement and interaction with other pieces in the kiln.

I have collected wood fired and salt glazed pottery for over 25 years. This is a wonderful addition. Craftsmanship, form and finish are all wonderful. Love it. Great service as well.
