Wood-firing in a Tozan anagama kiln is a 4-day marathon, requiring planning and teamwork. In April, members and guests of Fired Up! gathered on Gordon Hutchens’ property on Denman Island. Hutchens describes this wood-firing as one of the best he has experienced in 25 years of operating his anagama kiln. Visitors to the Metchosin show can view this excellence in the quality and variety of ceramics on display: vases, tea pots and bowls, sculptures, dinnerware, containers and other intriguing treasures.
