We’re fired up for this breathtaking display of works fired in NHIA’s Fushigigama woodkiln at our Sharon Campus.  This is a celebration of our emerging local woodfiring community as they share their excitement about the dynamic work that can come from this enigmatic firing practice. As the process of firing the Fushigigama is a long, complex and demanding endeavor; it is necessarily a collective effort, bringing together a diverse range of creative ideas and exchanges.  A broad group of students, faculty, alumnae, and local artists have created engaging functional and sculptural ceramic works all fired in the Fushigigama.  The work and the overall exhibition demonstrate an elegant balance of the individual creative process with the mark of the fire and the collaborative nature of woodfiring.

This exhibition is free, open to the public and handicap accessible. For more information contact exhibitions@nhia.edu
