“Clay, Art and Fire” featuring wood-fired functional stoneware by Willi Singleton, will be exhibited at Dot Bunn’s Red Stone Farm Studio, 4663 Bergstrom Road, just outside Doylestown.
The special collection, including new work from his May firing, will be on view and for sale from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27.
Influenced greatly by Japanese culture, Singleton’s work reflects both his enjoyment of the art form and a sense of place in which it was created.
Singleton was introduced to high-temperature wood firing during an apprenticeship in Japan. He uses several antique tools and processes, including a manual kick-wheel to form the pots and an organic wood ash glaze for his finishes.
The pottery reaches stoneware temperatures but is fueled with wood instead of gas or electricity. During the firing, wood ash falls on the ware adding color and texture to the surface resulting in subtle variations on the surface. No two pieces ever emerge exactly alike from the kiln.
Singleton will be available both days to discuss his unique collaboration between artist, kiln and place.
