Maddie Gerig Shelly

I would like to introduce you to a new up and coming artist. Her name is Maddie and she is Jane Graber’s niece. She is also Jane’s namesake. Jane is teaching Maddie a lost art called wood firing pottery. The pottery is cast on a wheel but it is then fired in an outdoor kiln or oven.  The work in wood kilns reveals the story of the firing, with pieces showing ash deposits and the path of the flame through the kiln. The glazes are different than used in electric kiln and your pieces are always a surprise. I love wood fired pottery because to me the glazes do amazing things…the patterns and colors come out with a different shine sometimes texture.

So if you want to support a young and upcoming artist be sure to look at Maddie’s pieces. Also, this is the way pottery would have been made before we had electric kilns and ovens. So if you are looking for a bean pot that was thrown on a wheel then baked in an outdoor kiln fired by wood-this where you find it.
