      "I find the occasional anagama firing to be a nice 'bookend' experience to the more regular firings in my Doorless Fiber Kiln, inasmuch as the spirit of shared camaraderie and purpose around a two-week period recharges me after a period of working alone in my own kiln. These two distinct fires are nearly polar opposites, and help to keep me centered in my work and friendships."
