Lowell Folk Festival - kiln fire, exhibit + demo, V.O.A interview

Yary & John Kondra fired up the kiln for the Lowell Folk Festival visitors. They started at 5 a.m. with the goal of making this a slow fire extending to 12 or 14 hours, but there was a soft breeze and a supply of long burning dry wood, the kiln steadily climbed to 2,300 degrees by 3:30 p.m. John managed the firing for much of the time while Yary demonstrated his throwing and carving techniques for appreciative crowds.




Voice of America reporter interviews Yary, while John stokes the fire box.


Nancy Selvage, retired director of Harvard Ceramics, dropped by with her family.
