Spring 2013 woodfire

It's Saturday March 30th and the snow is finally gone except for a pile in front of our wood storage. We had beautiful weather, near 60 degrees, and Yary began the day at the kiln with an incense offering at 7:00 a.m.

By the time I arrived at mid day, the first firing of our spring season was well underway.

That's Prof. Meredith Fyfe Day stoking the fire...above and below.

One visitor, Al, was passing by on his unicycle and dropped in to see what was going on.

We made good use of the pizza oven this time.


Many thanks to April, MCC ceramics student and Fio's Pizza employee. She brought all the ingredients and equipment and taught us how to make pizza.

Above is Serey Chou Tray learning to make pizza. Serey traveled all the way from Toronto to take a workshop from Yary and participate in the firing. Plus, she got up early in the morning to make bread dough and baked loaves of French bread in the kiln pizza oven! Thank you Serey, the bread was soooo delicious.

Pyrometers continue to challenge us, but gratefully we had the help of friends to troubleshoot and loan us equipment.

Collaboration made it a successful day!
