This last weekend marked the third time in the last year I fired my work in the wood kiln at Baltimore Clay Works. There were five us (two associates, three students and two wood-firing virgins) from the Art League. My anxiety over not having enough work paid off (sort of). Most of the crew got all their work in, but I was left with a dozen or so pots that returned home. Yes, I’m already contemplating Round 4.
The big decision of the firing was how much salt/soda. We went with 1 pound of salt and 5 pounds of soda, which was prepared with water and laid out on boards.
I’ll post more pics once the results are in.
I also want to give a big thanks to Jon Randall for sharing his great photography skills with Spirit of Clay.
