Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

Load Friday. Fire Saturday. Cool Sunday. Unload Monday. Four days of fun!!!
Tonight I unloaded my kiln, packed it all up, cleaned & scraped the shelves and
shlepped it all home. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have time to actually admire my new pieces?!

And then, somewhere in the middle of the kiln, there were some other beautiful things
happening in there… especially with some newer, bright pops of color!

Just love your pots!!!
On vacation on the Carolina coast in the 90s, I met a man who threw split rimmed bowls. I bought one of his and we started talking, he showed me how he turned the split on the rim.
It took me a while to be able to do it.
Just wanted to know I love how you make a beautifully constructed vessel and make it even more interesting and unique.
