New Woodfired Pottery from Julie Crosby
I have a soft spot in my heart for woodfired pots. Part of it is the incredible amount of work that goes into firing the wares. Part of it is the color and texture than only fire can impart. I think part of it might also be the perseverance that is required, given the huge toll that woodfiring exacts as a tax with each and every firing. A woodfiring potter's kiln is as much a tool as their wet clay tools and their wheel. These pots from Julie's latest firing speak volumes of how far she has come with her kiln over the past few years. It also makes me excited to see what the next firing holds!
