It's a lot of work to prepare for
and fire the wood kiln. The labour involved, and learning to understand the mystery beyond technology, in wood firing is something to master aside from working with the raw clay.
Wood as fuel produces a particular aesthetic, but it is also practical given the thickly wooded and remote area where I live and work.
Firings can last up to 18 hours, depending on many factors. The exhaustion I feel at the end is nothing short of satisfying.
I am thankful to be strong and healthy enough to carry out this intensive activity.
