David Peters is a Montana wood fire ceramic artist who digs and processes his own clay and wood fires his pottery in a hybrid anagama / train kiln he designed and built by hand. This print document helps tell a poetic story about his technical and labor intensive artistic practice. We wanted the publication to enhance his work through emphasizing the process of creation rather than just the finished objects themselves. The photography, writing, typographic illustrations, layout and printing were made using collaborative processes that mirror values found in David's process.
