Wood and Soda Fired
This collection was fired in an Atmospheric kiln fueled by gas and wood. No glazes were used on these sculptures. The colors are a result of the smoke, ash, and soda bicarbonate circulating inside the kiln during the firing. Lots of open flame was involved, along with temperatures reaching over 2300 degrees.
The kiln I used for these firings was built in 2012 by three dedicated artists, myself included. The kiln was designed by Jeff Whyman and construction was successful as a result of his expertise.
