The beauty of woodfiring: fire blasting this porcelain vase (4.08.02) produces a matt finish on one side, contrasting with the high gloss on the other. Warm colors come from the slip applied before firing. Carbon trap markings further enrich the surface.

Word has it this was one of Tony Moore's most successful firings to date. Unloading happened on Wednesday April 16. I missed it, arriving Saturday to pic up work. And oh, what a day it was. Sun shining, temps hitting 70's. And the black flies were out in droves. Many were present grinding glaze off shelves in preparation for upcoming June firing.
