battered and cracked


This piece was loaded into the front of the firebox. It's one of my favorites from this firing. It was constructed with a press mold, out of dark stoneware. Cracks and ash enhance and enrich this pyramidal form.

The kiln was unloaded in the reverse order to which it was loaded. The work is laid out on the hill beside the kiln so that all can see the range of effects that occured in various parts of the kiln.

A first look at the battered work in the front of the kiln. This image doesn't show off the rich color that much of the work sported.
