It’s not every day that potters make national news. But yesterday brought us another thing to be thankful for.
One day after unloading from my own communal wood firing at Baltimore Clay Works, I heard this story. The story highlights Miami Valley Pottery and the communal nature of wood firing.
Excited about my own results, and feeling warm and fuzzy about the community that surrounds our great art of pottery this story brought tears to my eyes. I also might have been feeling a little jealous that Naysan gets 40 people, some traveling hours, to come help stoke the fire for the 36 hours firing. Great pots and great life, Naysan. Good job.
