Cynthia McDowell  Country potter in the high desert of N.M.


Loading the wood kiln with my girls today. It’s a huge team effort to get all these pots loaded and fired, that’s one thing I love about it.
We’ve got 3 big stacks in- One more to go in the morning and then brick up the door and light the beast. Thanks @trevortdunn for hooking me up with some bigger shelves from your old kiln. Putting them to good use on the second stack.

Stacking bowls rim to rim in preparation for my upcoming wood firing. They have been glazed inside and will have wads separating them at the rim. (so that they can pop apart later.) This technique maximizes precious shelf space, builds the stacks up higher and opens up the flame path in the kiln.
Smaller pots can also be stacked on top of these. Thickness of rim and weight of pots are taken into consideration.
I think about this when I am at the wheel creating the pieces and how they will fit together.

Which fish head is your favorite? (Before the wood firing)
Largemouth Bass
Rainbow Trout
Sockeye Salmon
Tons of fish pots to be wood fired soon. 🎣🐟😃

Taking advantage of the overcast day and gentle breeze outside. By setting these bowls outdoors, I can throw and then trim these pots within a couple of hours.☀️💨
These are super textural on the outside. I’m thinking they will be awesome for serving chips and salsa. ~that tortilla chip look. 🌶😋

A sweet send-off photo of a wood fired strainer, as its headed to Texas to live and work. 😃❤️👩🏼‍🍳

Sharing the texture of the weathered Southwest with you, in clay.

I love wandering around our ranch looking for special and interesting places to photograph my pottery. Of course the daylight is always changing outside and creating new photo ops.
This tall, wood fired shino vase really pops against the worn out wood backdrop. This building was my father-in-law’s ham radio shack. He burned up the airwaves all night long in here and enjoyed talking to people all around the world. ❤️🎧🌏
This vase and more for sale in my Etsy shop. Link in profile.

Lots of throwing goin’ on here... bottles and jugs today.

Wood fired, pinched nesting bowls with lots of contrast, ash and flashing.
