Wood Fired Pottery
Jack Walsh discovered the unlimited expressive possibilities inherent in clay early in his life. He has been dedicated to exploring a deeper understanding of its natural tendencies throughout his life as a clay artist. His journey with this chosen material led him in 1989 to build his first kiln utilizing wood as the sole source of fuel to create finished pieces without applied glazes. He liked the results of these early wood firing efforts but it wasn’t until 1998 when he first fired in an Anagama kiln that he felt that he had found the right atmospheric environment for his work.
