Another April... another spring firing with friends at Hiroshi Ogawa's Hikarigama kiln. And my words fall short in expressing how grateful I feel towards the friends I have met working in clay and the community that makes up woodfire. We all bring more than our ceramic vessels; we bring stories, thoughts, comments and laughter. We bring support to one another and share our enjoyment of life through cooking and music. Bob Dylan and Neil Young are often played too much, yet bacon (the most talked about food item) can't get talked about enough. Jokes are exchanged, laughter ensues; we work with thoughtfulness towards one another and the pots we bring. Yes, we certainly bring more than our pots.
