These pieces were all fired in the massive Anagama kiln of ceramic artist Gordon Hutchinson on Denman Island. The process was truly amazing and solidified my love for ceramics! We fired several hundred pieces of work from two schools (North Island and Emily Carr). The firing lasted for two days, around the clock stoking, burning through over two cords of wood, reaching a temperature of over 1365 degrees celsius (cone 14 for you tekkies). The temperature in the kiln became so hot that the clay body of the work began to turn into a glass-like glaze resulting in the patinas you see! It was a wonderful experience and I am really happy with the outcome of the work.
