A DISPLAY OF ALL THINGS WOOD-FIRED
An Exhibition of new work by Doug Jeppesen
It’s been a long time since we’ve had a ceramics exhibition and we’re happy to see our gallery full of Doug Jeppesen’s work! If you love wood-fired ceramics, want to see what wood-fired ceramics are, or just love ceramics come by and check out his work. Doug has built an incredible and reputable ceramics program at Waubonsee Community College – if nothing else, you should check out photos of their outdoor kiln yard – http://artdept.waubonsee.edu/Ceramics/ceramics_kilnyard.htm

Most all of the work making up this show came out of his Anagama kiln less than a week ago after a 67hr firing.
Doug’s work is also for sale.
