      "Connected by Fire" Reception for Woodfire NC

      Across the globe wood firers are connected by a shared experience of smoke and sweat. Although woodfiring is a relatively small discipline within the ceramic arts, the contemporary community is extremely close knit. What it lacks in numbers, it makes up for in the passion, commitment and enthusiasm of its practitioners.

      Fire is at the root of what it means to be human. Because woodfirers work with this ancient tool, they share a common language that transcends contemporary cultural barriers. The act of working wood and flame tap into something ancient every person shares.

      This exhibition brings together nineteen artists from five countries for a special exhibition to showcase the language of fire and clay. Like any language, each artist speaks with an individual accent, influenced by the region they work in and their own unique history, bringing depth and diversity to the conversation. Yet through this practice that upholds the intrinsic values of work, beauty and community, a common united voice arises. This exhibition is a platform for that global message.
