The ceramics students from Kennesaw State University came by this weekend to fire the Manabigama here at Arrowmont. This is their second year to come out post fall finals and fire the wood kiln. Their former instructor Matt Mitros was a resident artist here nearly ten years ago and has been encouraging his students to take advantage of Arrowmont and the work study summer programs as well as the facilities here at Arrowmont, which are all rent-able (kilns and housing!). KSU’s new ceramic instructor Jeff Campana lead a great firing this week and has a great group of outgoing and incoming new ceramicist. Not only did they fill and fire the manabigama but they also turned around two soda kiln loads during the wood fire. I had work in all three kilns and will be sharing soon. In the meantime enjoy some pics from this firing.
