The Wood-Fired Kiln: A Catalyst for Collaboration – Springfield Art Museum

Wood-Fired Kiln features the work of seven well known local, regional,
national and international ceramicists whose work incorporates, to
varying degrees, wood-firing techniques and aesthetics: Kenneth Baskin,
Keith Ekstam, Rick Hirsch, Nina Hole, Jeff Johnston, Scott Meyer, and
Priscilla Mouritzen. This exhibit focuses specifically on work that has
been created using a wood-fire kiln and will investigate the character
and dynamic of the collaborations that have resulted from this very
communal and social process.

Artist of the Day: Priscilla Mouritzen

All the pinched bowls are the same size: hand-sized – as is demanded by the pinching process. They show all the variety and movement which porcelain clay allows and which the vagaries of wood firing embellishes them with. At the same time their inate ”pinched” quality gives them life and liveliness. The works show an exploration of pattern in which echoes of my childhood in Africa can be detected.
