Last week i visited Dalia and Amos BenMayor,whose work I have admired since arriving in this country [32 years ago]. They live and work in a Japanese-inspired house in Yodvat,near Karmiel,firing their shino and tenmoku-ware in a big Bailey gas kiln,very impressive [on the outside - it was cooling after a firing,so I couldn't see inside]. Amos told me that firing is not simple,even with such an advanced and well-thought-out kiln - after 10 firings,they are still trying to work out how to get good reduction. Check them out at the forthcoming Raanana Pottery Fair [June 16-18].
