Another surface detail from a piece in the most recent firing. We got a lot of this black halo effect around the wadding points of contact. It’s something that I had never seen before in my kiln. Nice quartz pebble on this one as well. #woodfiredsurface #woodfiredpottery #joshcopuspottery #ceramics #wildclay #waddingmark #woodfire

One of the greatest compliments you can receive as an artist is when a distinguished colleague purchases one of your pieces. @akirasatake is a friend and an inspiration. And he has always been a great motivator for me when I think about stepping my work up to the next level. Thanks for coming out last night and thanks for your support Akira. It means a lot (especially since you just got back from Australia 2 days ago). And thanks to everyone who came out to the show last night. For anyone in the area who couldn’t make it, the show is up till end of June. #akirasatake #community #bluespiral1 #woodfiredpottery #apotterslife #joshcopuspottery
