Captured Chaos

Pamela Timmons's avatar Pamela Timmons

These pieces are the result of an unusual firing process that is both exciting and serendipitous. Each piece is wrapped with copper wire and seaweed then buried in sawdust in a special kiln which I built just for this firing process. During the firing, salt and additional copper are added to the flame. All of this - copper, seaweed, sawdust, salt - fumes slowly around the kiln to produce a sense of motion and mystery.
