I went to visit Jason Shackleton yesterday, the chap that I did my apprenticeship with. I thought you might be interested to see some images from his pottery. This top picture is his kiln, wood fired 120 cubic foot. Rather large, holds roughly a year to eighteen months worth of work, depending on whether he has anyone working with him at the time. The fire box on the kiln is long enough to take the wood that he gets delivered in bundles without having to cut it up at all. Jason makes tin glaze majolica and slipware, this is where I got the slipware addiction from. He himself trained with Mary Wandrausch and Alan Caiger Smith.
