Gavin Noyes studied ceramic wood firing techniques in Shigaraki, Japan before building his own anagama kiln in southern Utah.† Gavin prefers the unadorned beauty that results from wood-firing. The surface of each pot tells the story of what happened between the fire and earth inside the kiln. Often there is no glaze obscuring the raw clay except the wood ash carried by the flames onto the surface of each piece. This beauty is similar to that found in southern Utahís striking landscapes, where the earth is naked of the trees, soil, and water which blanket most of our planet. Its creation, much like Gavinís work, is revealed to anyone who takes the time to study its intricacies
