Anagama Firing Sept 2013

I've finally gotten around to taking photographs from my last anagama firing in September. The firing itself went beautifully - ending right on schedule. At 72 hours we peered into the kiln, viewing the beautiful ember bed of glowing diamonds as we welcomed the sun rise. Feeling congratulated by the cool air of morning we went into town for a celebratory breakfast. It was a pleasure to fire with the new group of residents at Cub Creek, many of whom share the same passion for wood firing. It comes with both comfort and mystery to look over to a fellow potter after a long, moonlit shift and recognize the same ineffable feeling of accomplishment and exhaustion in their eyes. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to continue firing with this group throughout the rest of the year. 
Here are photos from the firing. I will update the information once prices are set. For now, please inquire if interested in work.
