The kiln is small in comparison to Peter's Valley (in western NJ) and Tony Moore's Anagama/Noborigama combo in Cold Spring NY. They call it the mini-gama or the Lil' Big Kiln. It does a great job, although full of cracks. There will be a rebuild of the kiln first week of August and I'm hoping to get up there and participate.
For this firing I made functional wares - bowls and mugs and a few vases. And then included a few masks. The masks are shown a few posts earlier in the bisque state. And here they are wood fired. Looking forward to alternate firings of all 50 masks and achieving a range of effects that evoke a sense of aged ancient artifacts.
These unique pieces are for sale:
English porcelain, Temoku glaze; wide range of colors showing up. Outside ranges from deep brown to rich amber with some crystals and striations. Interiors are a deep rich blue.
