Ken George

Ken has been potting for 20 years.  Mother Nature is not the only inspiration visible in Ken's work.  The history and chemistry of the art are a constant study for Ken.

  He  formulates his own glazes and has built several types of kilns.
He prefers to wood fire his pieces in the ancient traditional manner of potter's long ago

He also uses and teaches other kiln firing methods
Very Hot Pot
Gas fired Raku
Each piece is a work of art by a master craftsman.  Great attention to detail is given to all of Ken's art.
Fine art and functional alike!  



Preparing for a firing takes many hours!

Wood should ideally, be gathered and dried for 1 to 2 years.
Firing our  wood firing kiln is a family affair



Stoking the kiln is constant during a firing and takes approximately 12 hours to complete

The heat in front of the kiln is very intense reaching  temperatures exceeding 2300 degrees!
Everyone takes a turn at stoking the constant fire
