Pair of Large Wood Fired Vases – Side-fired on shells for 90 hours
Space inside a wood kiln is always extremely valuable and loading large forms can be risky. These two large vases are certainly an example of the risk paying off.
Fired on their sides for 90 hours, they were fired very close to each other near the front of the kiln. The color variations on these pieces provide a wonderful example of the atmospheric differences that can exist in a wood kiln.
Both of these vases now happily reside in the Haan Museum of Art in Lafayette, IN.
