There has been a dramatic increase in the number of potters firing with wood, particularly within the last generation. Wood firing is the process in which wood is used as fuel to fire pottery kilns that have been specifically designed for this purpose. In an age when technology has produced kilns capable of attaining high temperatures in a matter of hours, it is perhaps remarkable that many potters choose to build and fire kilns that are labor intensive and require constant attention throughout the entire period of the firing, which may last several days. For the wood-firers of today, the process represents an entire aesthetic, involving personal choices of both materials and techniques. Some seek the quiet touch of the flame accentuating a glazed surface or giving subtle ash effects on unglazed surfaces. Others combine wood firing and salt or soda glazing to achieve satisfying effects. Yet others want their work simply to look wood-fired, bearing evidence of the long intensity of fire. What wood-firers all have in common is an attraction to the active and creative process of wood firing. In Wood-fired Ceramics, Coll Minogue and Robert Sanderson briefly describe the development of the main types of wood-fired kilns used by today's potters. They then present the aesthetic aims, working practices, and kilns of an international group of artists. Clay, glaze, and slip recipes, kiln firing logs, and kiln plans are also included. Work by over sixty artists illustrates the text, and represents of the diversity of styles in contemporary wood-fired ceramics.

The Michiana Potters

The Michiana Potters

The Michiana Potters, an ethnographic exploration of the lives and art of these potters, examines the communal traditions and aesthetics that have developed in this region.

Author: Meredith A. E. McGriff

Publisher: Indiana University Press

ISBN: 9780253049667

Category: Social Science

Page: 288

View: 380

A new pottery tradition has been developing along the border of northern Indiana and southern Michigan. Despite the fact that this region is not yet an established destination for pottery collectors, Michiana potters are committed to pursuing their craft thanks to the presence of a community of like-minded artists. The Michiana Potters, an ethnographic exploration of the lives and art of these potters, examines the communal traditions and aesthetics that have developed in this region. Author Meredith A. E. McGriff identifies several shared methods and styles, such as a preference for wood-fired wares, glossy glaze surfaces, cooler colors, the dripping or layering of glazes on ceramics that are not wood-fired, the handcrafting of useful wares as opposed to sculptural work, and a tendency to borrow forms and decorative effects from other regional artists. In addition to demonstrating a methodology that can be applied to studies of other emergent regional traditions, McGriff concludes that these styles and methods form a communal bond that inextricably links the processes of creating and sharing pottery in Michiana.
