About the Artist

Sequoia Miller (Olympia) received a 2005 GAP to finish the building of a salt kiln. Destined for a rural location in Thurston County, Miller will reconstruct a kiln with the goal of converting it into a dual wood and gas fueled salt kiln. Extra brick to add a firebox and extend the chimney as well as refractory coating for the interior and new shelves will be purchased with GAP funding. As a functional potter, Sequoia enjoys the expressive potential of salt firing. “Every mark one makes is visible and the handling of the clay itself becomes the dominant expressive gesture,” says Miller.
