|....fresh pots drying for next week's woodfiring.|
Happy January 2014!
Here's just a quick shout out to the beginning of a new year in the (same ol') Studio with some shots of work that's being prepared for next week's wood kiln. Usually, I fire with my buddy, Jeff Brown, down at Nichols State University in Southern Louisiana twice a year, with the winter firing being held the first week in December.
After what was a crazy- long fall filled with two major exhibitions and teaching, I new that I had neither the work nor the stamina for a firing this year (technically, last year, I guess..)
So, I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the kiln had been pushed back to January 31st, 2014- plenty of time to recoup and make some woodfire pots!
