"This series of "Woodgrain Pottery" explores the nature of wood fired work and gives a sense of identity back to the wood lost through the firing process. Wood kilns can take as long as 3-5 days to reach peak temperatures where ash from the wood begins to melt and fuse with ceramic material. After firing a number of kilns myself, I felt compelled to find a way to preserve the nature of the wood before it became a fuel source. The resulting work gives the lost wood new life and purpose as a series of functional forms that memorialize the sacrificed material."
