i just got back from doing a wood firing at hambidge in north east ga. while i have never experienced a woodfire before (except the one we did in belize and i didnt do much on that one.) this is on the top of my list for one of the very best experiences. i know now what how much work all of you who do woodfiring do.
Ann Rafferty runs a great crew along with Dawn Holder who is executive director of the center and Jennifer who teaches at Georgia state. i never had so much fun doing hard work. everyone there was the greatest. what better way to bond with other potters than to do hard work. . if you ever get the chance to do a woodfiring there i would jump at it! i wish i had a web site to share the pics with all of you....... as i got some great ones! i know I'm teasing all of you but if you would like me to email you some pics i would be glad to .i cant wait till we open the kiln next week! its sooooo long to wait! watch for an update then..
