Visited him as part of the Open Studios scheme and he's built himself a woodfired kiln in the garden (after using electric and gas up until then). This is from his first firing, and he had a bit of a problem getting the soda in - squirting a solution of bicarbonate of soda, but his nozzels kept melting and blocking. The pots came out ok, though. I've asked him for some more round ones; the others had all sold by the time I got there.

Vase from his latest soda firing. Dots of cream slip have changed to red in places, and to a brown feathering where the full force of the flame hit the pot.
