The Charlotte Observer: Ready, sculpt, FIRE!

FireFest, now in its fourth year, is celebrated at STARworks in Star, NC. Each year, it focuses on clay, glass, and metal as they are transformed by intense heat and the hand of the artist. Ferrin Contemporary’s Sergei Isupov is a key player in this year’s festival of fire.

“If all goes according to plan on April 2, a massive, specially designed kiln in this little town 90 minutes east of Charlotte will open like a flower, revealing a 7-foot-tall ceramic sculpture still wreathed in flames.” — Mark Leach, correspondent
