Ceramics Festiva

20130523154033-2

There’s something magical about ceramics. I think it’s the fire.

An artist spends hours, days, years molding earth into a vision, then puts their vision into an inferno. And instead of destroying the vision, the inferno brings it to life.

It was my pleasure to cover a pottery-firing event in Kalispell not too long ago for Montana Quarterly magazine. Lots of artists from all over gathered to talk about technique, about vision, about art, and then they made some really big fires and out came some really wonderful pieces.
