Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion on wood firing with Linda Christianson, Elisa Helland-Hansen, Jan McKeachie Johnston, and Lindsay Oesteritter. We talk about how each artist came to wood firing, how they developed a personal aesthetic within the process, and how they critique their work after a firing.
