This January, i attended an amazing ceramics workshop in Curaumilla, Chile that included instruction from Ken Matsuzaki of Mashiko, Japan, and Randy Johnston. of River Falls, Wisconsin. Work was fired in both soda and wood, and the ashiness of wood firing is calling out to me!. Here are some of the pieces I created in Curaumilla. (Workshops are held in January and February.
