The Naked Truth: 2004 International Woodfire

Dear Woodfire Artist,

In conjunction with The Naked Truth: 2004
International Woodfire Conference taking place
September 15 - 18, 2004, we plan to publish a
collection of articles related to woodfiring. This
will be given to all conference attendees as part of
their registration and be a permanent reference (and a
copy will be given to each contributor).

In addition to those artists who will be presenters at
the conference we would like to invite those artists
who are not presenting to provide short pieces they
would like to present to the attendees. We hope this
will provide a venue for more artists to have a voice
in the conference as well.

Possible topics include (but feel free to write about
whatever issue you feel is important):

- why you chose the woodfire kiln design you currently

-what issues related to woodfire are you currently
working on and how do these relate to your

- what is the place/role of woodfired ceramics in
contemporary art

- what is the criteria you use for judging a woodfired
(sculptural or functional) piece?

We would like the text (in MS Word, Times typeface, 12
size if possible) by Sept 10, 2004. Thank you for your
consideration (and bearing with this late notice!). We
look forward to your submission!
