Studio Visit - Susan Roden

Over the past few months we've been taking a peak into the studios of our OPA members. Here is a peak at the new kiln that OPA Member, Susan Roden, has built and the results from her first firing.

Susan writes: "A year ago, I took down my gas-fueled pottery kiln, that I had built about 25 years ago. It took me almost nine months to build a new kiln on the same spot. This time I made it able to fire both natural gas (propane) and/or wood.

I knew that the pots would be different and I had many expectations, though I tried not to get my hopes up too high.

The first wood-fueled firing was Saturday, June 19. After a few days of cooling, it was opened Tues, June 22.

I was very pleased with the results.
