Yaki Sugi: Day 06

We had an excellent day of burning today, and were joined by architects and designers, interested in learning the process of creating Yaki Sugi Ita.  Thanks so much to Dale Mulfinger, Jody McGuire, Aaron Amosson, Peter Crandall, Matt Tierney, Katie Myhre, and Sam Daley.  It was great connecting with other designers around this exciting material process.

Matt and Katie are naturals.  It must be something you pick-up going to school in Portland.
