Wood fired Ceramics by Sharon Wagner

Visit the (small) BOX gallery on the 3rd floor of Summit Artspace to view a retrospective of Sharon’s work from the Treaty Line pottery kiln.

“This is a collection of many of my favorite pieces creating during 10 years of firing a wood fueled kiln in Holmes County. Although it is a labor intensive and time-consuming type of firing, the communal experience and the end result make it well worth the investment. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to help build it and be part of all the firings with Carol Ohl.” - Sharon Wagner
