Joe Winter and Paul Herman met and developed a kinship in the art of pottery in 1995. Though a shared desire to develop their craft, they designed and built an anagama wood fire kiln, which they have fired regularly for the last 19 years. Several years ago, they enlisted the help of a young and dedicated potter, Casey Clark who, along with a small group of ceramic advocates have formed a ritual and community around wood fired ceramics in the Great Basin, north of Reno, NV.

During the Fall of 2018, the three ceramicists sat down with artist, Troy Corliss to discuss their history, craft and design process which has evolved around the anagama kiln. This video includes the full interview and video footage from the Fall 2017 firing.
