JOSEPH SAND | SPRING 2016

This is the preview for the 17th firing of the large, anagama kiln.  The results were really spectacular and we are really pleased with how the pots turned out.  The axes (mounted on slate this time) and the large sculptures are quite phenomenal and are, by far, my favorite pieces this firing.  

 

We hope to see you at the kiln opening this weekend!
