Here's some information about a new newsletter produced by Coll
Minogue & Robert Sanderson, two fine potters from Scotland. They are
working hard to further the community of woodfirers around the world.
They recently published an excellent book titled Woodfired Ceramics;
anyone involved or interested in firing with wood will appreciate
this book. The only connection I have with these enterprises is my
continued admiration what they've accomplished.

Editors: Coll Minogue & Robert Sanderson

In much the same way that "world roots music" has developed a rhythm
and beat - interpreting traditional sounds through contemporary
culture - so the making and woodfiring of ceramics, inspired by a
historical and traditional aesthetic, has gained recognition as a
form of creative expression in recent times. We intend The Log Book
to be a forum for the discussion of the many diverse aspects which
contemporary woodfiring has come to represent.

-Articles by woodfirers - what they want to achieve in their work,
why they woodfire.
-Articles on clays, slips, glazes, wood, wadding, stacking, kilns.
-Listings of woodfire workshops, conferences, seminars, exhibitions, etc.
-Articles on woodfiring in traditional potteries.
-A kiln plan in most issues - either of a traditional style of kiln,
or one used by a contemporary potter.
-Reports of ceramic work centres which have woodfire
facilities-including details of the kilns available.
-News of, and reports about, specialist woodfire events worldwide.
-Features on woodfired pottery from different countries.
-Articles on specific periods in the history of woodfiring.
-Reports on woodfiring in education-featuring colleges worldwide
which offer woodfire facilities.
-And much more.
