The kiln warming up for the job. What a sweet kiln!!! I built it in the early 80s and have fired it soooooooo many times. I'd kiss it if it did'nt burn me. (I have, it did)
I taught ceramics and general art at the high school level for 32 years. Iv'e been melting glass and firing raku for almost 40. I retired from teaching and now devote my time to my own work and to find my own path. for the last 35 years I have been represented by gallerys in Carmel and Pacific Grove California.
