Wood Firing

Click on images for larger view
This work was fired in an anagama kiln built by Jim Stout on Lopez Island. Firings usually last for 40 - 48hrs. They are done in 4 hour shifts with at least two people present to maintain constant stoking around the clock. Once glazing temperature is reached it is maintained for 15 - 18 hrs. to give the ware its one of a kind lustre. Approximately four cords of fir and alder are burned.
Firings occur once a year in the spring. The most recent one was in April 2015.
