In searching for a Clay body that works well in our small wood/soda kiln, I have decided to test 5 commercial wood fire clay bodies. I plan to report on throwability for the mediocre potter (like me), handle pulling, and firing results from various locations in the kiln. Stay tuned.

Marlene "Marlee" May Roudebush. Born last night! 7lbs and healthy!
Blessed with a new private studio space to work in while teaching here at IWU! After having built my dream studio, this is really taking me back to grad school... pallets, sink cutouts, and some buckets (everything but the death metal that always blasted from my neighbors studio at Note Dame). #studiopottery #pallets #sinkcutouts
Studio Assistant hard at work.
Wood Fired Pendants have arrived at farmsteadironworks.etsy.com
Starting to clean up the #woodfired #pendantlights. Shelves are filling up fast here @farmsteadironworks!
Here's some more #woodfired #pendantlights results. These are decorated with natural fly ash from the kiln. There's also a glimpse of some nice cobalt blue shades as well. I will post some pics soon as these get a final clean up and become working pendant lights for @farmsteadironworks
Here's the first look at some of the wood fired pendant light results from the community firing this weekend. These 5 have a copper/black patina glaze! #woodfired #pendantlights #woodfiredpottery
Kiln is alive here at the Community Firing this evening. Beautiful. #woodfiredpottery #woodfire #woodfirepotterykilns
