Part VI : Seagrove Community Woodfiring at the North Carolina Pottery Center

Shift Three

Potteries: Chad Brown, Ben Owen III, Dirtworks, Great White Oak, Great White Oak, From the Ground Up

When I went down this afternoon everyone was busy running around stoking the kiln.  The temperature was a bit uneven so the potters were trying to figure out how to even it out.  They took a time out for a group photo and then back at it again.  This stage of the firing can be real exciting.  Stoking is more often and the flames are evident.

I just can't get over the concentration of amazing potters in your area. It's so exciting. All of the recent woodfire postings, here and on other blogs, are getting me so excited for my woodfiring later this month!

Can't wait to see results from your firing!
