Firing choices


I’ve made use of all the usual methods of glazing and firing in a somewhat ragged pattern. When I started out at Alfred University in 1955 it was strictly Cone10 reduction. No other choice was tolerated. I saw a pot by a student removed from a show by a Dean because it had some Lo-temperature glaze on it. Everything was Cone10 in those days. Anything else was for women Hobbyists. The only kilns being built were high temp’s. Then in the 60’s things went from that sort of conservatism to anything goes.


The next hunger was for Salt fires. Every body needed a sodium fire. Then came the wood fires. At some point I decided that I had enough. High temperature fires as I was entitled too. So with a nod to Mother Earth I went on to Smoke fires and Raku firing. The trigger for that decision happened when a novice showed me a small bowl that had come apart on her in a bisque fire. I explained what had happened and I asked her if she didn’t think the shards were really handsome. She didn’t like it at all – it was “just a mess.” I was blown away by the “failure” and asked if she minded if I took her idea and played around with it. There was nothing of value there for her so she couldn’t care less.


That started my Broken Vessel Series, which had me smoke firing for 6 - 7 years. I’d make the piece, bisque it and throw it on the ground. I would color the shards indiscriminately with iron oxide, and smoke it. Now was the fun part: reassembling the pieces to see the wondrous patterns and gluing them all together. I’d earned a kind of intimacy with this work that remains special to me.


See number 37 which has a reassembled base a with a salt glazed arch on top.

No gold lies above ground. It is all mined in the farthest reaches of the psyche - toiled toward, not picked up.
