I’m feeling pretty exhausted after the firing yesterday for the Mobile Anagama Invitational but we are going to rally for a good cause and stay on schedule for today’s public cup sale at 6pm in the Wedge parking lot. Come on out if your in the area. The pool is still in effect and the water is fine. #themobileanagama #mobileanagama #apotterslife #kiln #woodkiln #woodfiredceramics

An important component of any good public art performance woodfiring circus demonstration is good signage. @wi7dbilljones knows this more than most people. The Mobile Anagama is firing in the Wedge parking lot behind the Foundation Clay Studio till we run out of wood, which will probably be till 2 AM. #themobileanagama #mobileanagama #woodfiredceramics #woodkiln #buildingcommunity

The natural world and my experience with it are the greatest sources of influence with the work. This piece. Very much touched by the hand. Reminiscent of the sun, clouds, grasses and wind. Full of the energy that I bring to the work. Whatever name you call that thing that I’m chasing… This piece has it. #squarewedge #joshcopus #ceramics #woodfiredceramics #stonevessel

For the past 10 years or so, I’ve been trying to make work that has a certain feeling to it, work that has the feeling of ancient stones with lots of stories to tell. I’ve already come to terms that this will be a lifelong pursuit, but sometimes I get little glimpses of success. Reminders that I’m still on the right track, like this little gem from the spring firing. #rockvessel #woodfiredceramics #ceramics #joshcopus
