Artist's Statement

The dramatic effects of wood-firing complete my work and tie it together. In my wood-fired kiln (a blend of an anagama and a groundhog kiln), flame and ask directly and strongly interact with the clay. Flame colors the work and ash forms a natural glaze. At temperatures above the roughly 2250 degrees F that the ash melts, the color palette is reduced to earh tones and some greens and blues that will withstand the strong bleaching action of the firing. The payoff is a soft, naturally varying blush reminiscent of moss on rocks or the patina of long-buried artifacts.
