Wood Fired Tea Cups

A set of two teabowls, woodfired in a Japanese style Anagama kiln  a long, tunneled kiln built on a slope, brought to Japan in the 5th century from China.

For this wood firing, a group of ceramicists gather far from cities in Pope Valley in California and fuel the flame with wood in constant shifts for several days and nights to keep the kiln burning. As you turn the piece, its hues shift: this reflects the unpredictable ways in which the ash and flame touched the pot over the course of the 8 days it took to fire. This pot is the opposite of instant.

Kiyomi Koide was raised in Japan and discovered clay in San Miguel de Allende.
