Mike Weber, who lives in northern Wisconsin, was kind enough to invite me to send a few pieces to be fired in his anagama "Rocket Man" this past June. Mike fires for three days, solely with pine wood, and gets cone 13 melted. Here are the results:
These two wood fired pieces were recently selected for inclusion in "CONDUCTIVITY: The Many Faces of Copper in Ceramics", being held at Companion Gallery, Humboldt, TN, from September 1st - 30th, 2017.
These three pieces were exhibited in "Journey With Wood Fired Pottery: A Collector's International Collection", Cooroy Scout Hall, Cooroy, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. This exhibition was part of the recent Australian Woodfire Ceramics Conference, and is a portion of the extensive collection belonging to Gunter Schwarz of Germany.
