Lucien Koonce: May 2010 woodfiring with Chris Gustin and Jeff Shapiro

We loaded the anagama kiln at Chris Gustin’s studio in South Dartmouth, MA last month (May) for three days, then fired for six days. Jeff Shapiro drove down from his studio in Accord, NY to load and fire with us.

We unloaded this past Saturday (June 12th); there were spectacular firing results. Here are a few of my pieces from this kiln load:
