Johns Japanese influenced woodfired stoneware ceramics is typically produced in a four chamber noborigama that consumes about two cords of a local sawmills scrap pine and hemlock offcuts during the typical 36 hour heating cycle that brings the kiln to about 2400 degrees F. John is a part-time adjunct Professor of Ceramics at the New Hampshire Institute of Art and is a specialist in the design and construction of fuel fired ceramic kilns. He is available to conduct visiting artist presentations and kiln building workshops, as well as consult on kiln installations and other studio technical issues.
