Peter Lange and Duncan Shearer (NEW ZEALAND)

Duncan Shearer

Peter Lange and Duncan Shearer are leading potters from New Zealand. Together they will be exploring the intriguing possibilities inherent in using unusual kiln building materials, making and firing three breath-taking kilns during the weekend: The Potato Kiln (Friday Night), a small table top kiln built out of potatoes and other vegetables; this will be a spectacle of sight, sound, taste and smell to open the festival with! Phone Book Kiln (Saturday night), a startlingly beautiful spectacle of an inferno, created with 150 phone directories! The Original Wood Kiln (Sunday day), this kiln built from a solid log is the ultimate expression of simplicity. Starting with a massive stump they will fashion a fully functioning raku kiln.
