Then a chain of people unloaded everything, when wares were still pretty hot.
Several members of the Clay Club shared that they wood fire in this area. Many of the students at BMCA Clay Studio have never observed a wood kiln. It's a smokey affair and gives results that aren't duplicated in other kilns. Thanks Charles Freeland, for sharing his experience with all of us. Charles is the manager of the Clay Studio of Black Mountain Center for the Arts.
