Anagama Firing...March 2015

Gustin's anagama was fired March 10th - 15th as a pre-event to NCECA (National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts). Along with regular crew members, were invited guests Dan Anderson, John Balistreri, Barry Bartlett, Doug Casebeer, Justin Lambert, Jan and Randy Johnston, Matt Long, John DeWeese, and Arnie Zimmerman.

 The kiln opening revealed a fantastic firing, and was attended by many who were at the conference March 25th - 28th in Providence, RI. Here are some of my pieces from this firing...
