Andy Ward Inspired Ceramics At Brother’s Campfire

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

It was a long, hard day at work, but I accomplished a lot. Community contacts are part of the game, and I reached out to a lot of organizations today. I wonder if they compare notes after I call.

The tough part is while I am fairly sociable, I am in all actuality an introvert. Slowly, I am getting better at managing a large flow of people in my life.

I am good at mingling and being in a crowd, but being personable non stop is exhausting.

It is the weekend now, so I will put such things aside.

We built a Campfire today to fire some more pottery. I am getting a little better at sintering the home levigated clay.

I have been learning a lot about the art of ancient pottery from a fellow named Andy Ward from

He has a lot of excellent tutorials, and one day, I may attend one of his classes.

This fire is made exclusively from old, broken furniture. If you look at the picture above, I placed a cabinet door on coals, then placed bricks to rest my pottery on. Tomorrow will be the day to see how well I did.
