Collaboration of Vision
The Wood Fired Pottery of Pia Sillem, Jinny Whitehead, Ron Robb and Jan Lovewell—will be displayed at the Gallery of BC Ceramics this November. The exhibit will feature a selection of works fired at the Kiln at Earl’s Cove since January 2009. Throughout fifty or more hours of firing, the kiln is attended to at all times and stoked approximately every fifteen minutes. The temperature rises to about 2350 oF (1287 oC) after twenty-four hours and is held there for the duration. Inside the kiln, flames travel around the pots, depositing ash, which melts onto the surfaces and forms a glaze. The marks left by the flames create the colourful, lively, organic surfaces sought by wood-fire enthusiasts. The artists will be present at the opening reception Thursday, November 1, from 5 to 7 pm. The exhibit will continue through November 27 at 1359 Cartwright Street, Granville Island.
