I put up this picture from last months trip to Korea. A small boy sitting next to a sculpture. I always like a good picture, you probably do too.

After trading in the trowel and level, for the chainsaw and woodspliter, time to trade in the chainsaw and splitter for the wheel and water bucket. There is finally time to throw some pots. There was about 100lbs. of porcelain in the mixer so that's where the throwing will start. These are some tokouri, for the spring firing, next something to drink out of.
Winter has finally hit and it is non to soon to get back into the studio!

The wood should be nice and seasoned for the spring firing. I may get another four cords next week if the weather improves. I always like to have a least, two firings worth of wood on hand when I fire. Three firings worth would be better, but I don't have the space right now. Having a surplus of wood takes away the stress of running out of wood, or having judgments on firing, not for the good of the pots, but because you might run out of wood.
Leona is a great wood stacker. She grew up with wood for heat, as one of the younger children of the family, her job was to stack the wood after it was split. The stokers can now thank her for wood that is very well organized, and neatly stacked. This doesn't seem like much, but on three to five day firings, organization makes a big difference.

Hello All: I haven't posted in a long time. A bit of time away from the computer was needed. Here is a link to what I have been up to,
This wood fired kiln was made in a workshop the Mike Martino hosted at his studio in Taku, Japan. I was the guest artist. Mike and I designed this kiln over a two year period. The workshop was glorious and the kiln that got built is top notch. I am very proud to have been a part of this project, and look forward to wood firing this new kiln in the spring.
The picture is of the first chamber of two chambers.
Sorry to have been away so long, it's good to be back.
