SwampFire Retreat for Artists and Writers

 



Creativity at Steve Smith's 4 Corners Gallery

Photos of the 2013 bowl-painting session of June 15, in which participants used feathers and brushes to paint resist onto pots thrown by Rebecca Graves and already fired with terrasigulata glaze in Smith's main kiln.


Rebecca Graves watches as Steve Smith demonstrates the technique

 


Alex Friedman and Rachel Baker listen to explanation of resist technique

 


Rebecca Graves paints, Jennifer Creighton contemplates

 


Dawn Comer reflects on the process of painting words on already-fired pot

 


Melissa Hasbrook gets the feel of a feather in her hand

 


Steve Smith and Rebecca Graves stoke the kiln

 


Just waiting for the kiln to get hot enough to refire the pots

 


But waiting isn't that hard

 


Pots wait patiently to be smoked in the kiln

 


Smith inserts the last of the pots, then he'll add green leaves for smoky soot

 


Sunday morning, time to read poetry, fiction, reflections on art

 


Just listen to the sound of clay thrown into words
