I just finished up a whirlwind 5 days at Florida Atlantic University. We loaded, fired, unloaded, and cleaned the work from 2 kilns. Only one of which made it successfully to temperature… buts that’s how you learn!
I demonstrated and talked a bunch and shared multiple image presentations.
We even found some time to go to the beach and do some bowling.
It was a fantastic time.
I saw a lot of young people become excited about woodfiring. The transformation to empowerment that the kiln can have on people always fascinates me and fills my heart with joy and hope.
Thanks to Angel and Thomas for having me. And most of all thanks to all the students for being interested in my stories.
