Laid Back Wood Firing is in Demand

There are only two more spaces left in the Laid Back Wood Kiln Building and Firing Workshop with Markus Boehm at the School of Art, University of Manitoba.  The workshop is from June 21-30 June and includes a firing of the kiln.  This is a small easy to fire one person kiln.  If you are thinking that you want wood-fire effects or the option for lots of ash, this is the sweet little kiln for you.  It is a Bourry Box with an extended throat and a small chamber.  The cost is $325.  If you want more information please get in touch with me:        I expect these two places will be gone very soon!

My creative life has many facets. I am a Professor of Ceramics and Art History at the School of Art, University of Manitoba. I write for a number of ceramic journals including Studio Potter, Art and Perception, Ceramics Technical, New Ceramics, and Ceramics Monthly. My research focuses on historical and contemporary Canadian woodfiring and, in particular, the marginalization of women. This year I have presented papers on the topic of the marginalization of women within the field of ceramics at the Third European Wood Fire Conference in La Borne, France, and the Creative Women Conference at the University of Guelph. I own Wheel and Throw. Contemporary Ceramic Design where I produce limited edition ceramic bottles. In the spring of 2019, I will be one of the resident artists at Hospitalfield in Abroath, Scotland. Can't wait! I can be reached at
