Ceramicist Richard Rowland

Richard Rowland is an experienced ceramic artist who fires an anagama, or an outdoor community kiln, in Astoria. The anagama, also called a dragon kiln, is an outdoor kiln which is built into a hillside and gets its heat from a wood fire that gives pottery a unique color and texture. Anagamas have been used in Asia for over 1000 years.
