A Couple of Summer Firings with Jeff Shapiro

I was fortunate to be able to fire in Accord, NY at the studio of Jeff Shapiro this summer. In June, the anagama was fired, which lasted six days. In July, I helped fire his "tea bowl" kiln. This is a sweet little kiln that is used to wood fire small wares that are glazed.

Below are a few works that came out of the anagama firing in June, followed by a piece from the July firing.
