My latest firing was on May 20. I know I am harming the surrounding nature by making a fire in the middle of the forest. Millions of young leaves are converting CO2 into oxygen. And here I am converting these oxygen into CO2 again. My excuse is that I'm using very efficient type of kiln, and activity itself is the way I can express my appreciation what nature gives us. Nature might be scowling at me while I am firing, but probably forgiving me after all because I use only half a cord of wood at a time and more than 50% of them are just fallen dead branches.

These are from my latest firing (May 20). Larger bowls are about 12" dia.
