Individual Pieces

Broadly defined, the vessel is creative in the best sense – if we regard it as an individual work which, through its sculptural and painterly qualities, leaves space for an intuitive and playful approach while working, continually providing new inspiration.

Individual pieces from the woodfired kiln

Firing ceramics in a woodifred kiln to achieve natural ash glazes requires a willingness to be exposed to a holistic and empirical process – besides all the wide-ranging knowledge of ceramics and firing technology that is necessary.

This begins with the preparation of the necessary quantity of wood for fuel, planning how the kiln is to be loaded with the ceramic pieces, loading the kiln, non-stop firing over several days and nights, managing the firing and the subsequent cooling-down phase, and it ends days later when the kiln is unpacked and the results are examined…

… results with a unique aura.
