After high firing in a gas kiln for 25 years, Wickford, Rhode Island, potter Harry Spring was forced by circumstances to switch to electric. This was quite an adjustment, as Spring had come to depend on the serendipitous effects that are part of the magic of reduction firing. But, adjust he did. Today he shares with us some of the adjustments he made that have made switching to oxidation firing a fun challenge rather than a burden.
