My first Pit Firing...Awesome! I have always wanted to do more 'earthy' firings and now is the time. Inspired by Gary Sherman's work I had already been crafting a series of monolithic sculptural pieces. When I saw PA Art Center was hosting a pit firing I thought this would be perfect for these pieces. Well, I learned a lot in the process....what clay didn't work well (Glacia) and where my seams were not constructed strong enough. Now I'm learning the art of Kintsugi as I re-build some of the pieces. But the majority of the 18 pieces I put in turned out great. It was like Christmas morning heading out to Spring Valley Anagama to uncover what was created.
