I started wood firing in 2000 while studying ceramics at Nassau Community College with Bill Shillalies. The small Anagama that we would fire became an instant love of mine. I continued firing kilns from then on. I find myself overwhelmed with joy when firing wood kilns. From start to finish I almost can not contain myself with the excitement it brings me. One of the most impressive aspects about firing Anagama kilns is that you are constantly learning from the process this is just one of the things that draws me to it.
