On a windy Friday night, community members and residents of Taos Clay meticulously wadded and loaded over 300 glazed pots to be fired in our manabigama kiln. Ceramic artists as far as Albuquerque traveled to Taos to include their ceramic works into the monthly wood firing.The firing spanning over two days will be finished today at noon.
