penlandkiln webI had the amazing opportunity to participate in a two week workshop at Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC.  The instructors, Richard Burkett and Joe Molinaro guided the class through several salt, soda and one three day wood firing of the Penland anagama/noborigama kiln.  The energy and work ethic of the class was exhilarating, with approximately 20 students ranging in age from 20-81!   Everyone worked immensely hard and the result was well worth the effort.  I am extremely grateful to ‘the friends and family of John Neff’ scholarship, through which I was given the opportunity to go to Penland.

What a beginning to the summer and to a new window of opportunity for atmospheric firings!
