David Morrison Pike. Wood fired ceramics.

by togei » Aug 28th 10 1:39 am

It is a pleasure to see so many nice ceramic works in this forum. I have been looking and learning a lot.
I would like to post a few of my pieces.
I have 2 wood fueled kilns. A 2 chamber noborigama and a 9 meter long snake kiln. My main work is white, black, and unglazed.

That feldspar glaze is pretty rad! Been looking for a surface like that for a while now...

I would like to show where I live. These pictures are of tea fields next to my house. My house now sits where there used to be tea fields.

Very cool, David! So what are they doing with the broom like thing? My guess is cleaning off webs in final prep for harvesting.

I bet you get some really fresh tea? Do they sell to the locals or does it all go into big lots?

Thanks for sharing.
