We moved our workshop to a different venue this year, to Baltimore Clayworks. And boy were we happy with this decision! Their kiln is a two-chamber noborigama, larger and more complex than the one we had been visiting before. And it is operated in a first-class manner by kiln manager Jim Dugan and his assistant Jeremy Wallace. They provided tons of leadership and expertise, while making sure everyone got as much hands-on contact with the kiln as possible.
Here's Jeremy directing traffic, while students line up to hand him pots, and Kori Rice places the pots into the kiln. Everyone who wanted got a chance to climb into the kiln and do what Kori's doing.
This was truly the best wood-firing I've ever been a part of, from start to finish.
