Ever growing


shedding skin


keeping pure the life within.

Time eternal



A vision of forever



In which I do reside



A million years is nothing



I am in the now-moment mind.

winter haul



















This week I have rested after firing two kilns at Michel Francois pottery. We fired a Tenmoku kiln on friday and then a big kiln on saturday. The results were happy and lifts the weight of all the hard work of january and february. I filled the big kiln with domestic ware, teaware and sakeware plus a few bottle vases and porcelain pieces which I do not usually make.
There were a few test glazes this time including one made purely from Granite and woodash. I also tested ten materials I have collected from cliffs and rivers over the past couple of months with interesting results. I am happy to have new teaware.
I thank Michel for supporting me and letting me use his recipes, workshop and kilns, for the food and friendship. I also thank rob for his insight into glazes and materials testing.
