Flash Report

for Posterity & Beyond

February 8, 2019

 

This report is posted at: www.flickr.com/photos/60428361@N07/43268362630/ This edition is a calculated risk. I’m not sure how many people will even glance at it with the exception of a couple of researchers of minor league baseball, a few folks of German ancestry and anyone who played with and against Buzz Arlitt during his years in baseball from 1934-1942 and then in 1946. Sure wish there were a few more Carthage Cardinals left from 1946 to add to this story. But the only ones I know who are still around are; Cloyd Boyer, Thomas Crossley. Rep. William Eckensberger and possibly Louis Robert Cloutier who was from Windsor, Ontario.

Unbelievably, two comments were received regarding one article in last week’s report. This is one of them. “John: Well, I believe you have certainly out done yourself with this report! Holy cow! Buzz Arlitt was quite the physical specimen at nearly 6' 6" and 245 lbs. If the Navy thought he was too big for their service, I'm sure the Army or Marines would have loved having him. The story of him slouching at the Navy induction physical so he could pass the doctor's exam reminded me of my induction physical back in early 1969. When the doctor saw the big scar on my right knee from my operation for torn cartilages, he told me I could probably get out of being drafted if I wanted to. Much to the amazement of the guys behind me, I told him that no, I didn't want to fight that issue. I thank God for how that all turned out. I ended up stationed in a Finance Office in Germany, and upon returning to Mizzou, used the G.I. bill to complete college.

 

That story of the murder suicide involving a character named "Home Runn" would make a great Hollywood movie! Keep up the good work John. You're always very entertaining. I hope your heating pad and I-Pad keep working!-- Leo Downey

Then, from Fayetteville, Arkansas came a note that I fully expected to receive. Never is a former Ark.-Mo. league player named that historian Jerry Hogan misses. Here is what he wrote “Read the report yesterday when it came in and, of course, jumped all over the Buzz Arlitt, A-ML(Arkansas-Missouri league) stuff. My book actually has a fair amount of stats for Arlitt including several entries where he made all-time leaders lists for the league. Missing 2 games for Herb Fash, it's possible that Buzz won the half-season triple crown in 1940, losing only the would be batting title to Fash.”.

So, what alternatives are left for another report that two people will read? Seldom do I receive a “Holy Cow” or someone “jumping all over a story” like happened in the last report. Thus, I’ll pick up where last week’s report left off.

It can’t be predicted what might trigger the main topic of any Flash Report. Last time around the subject of one article was about Adolph “Buzz,” “Junior,” “Double-Dip,” “Flop Ears,” and many other nicknames Arlitt. Those appellations were shared by a sportswriter for the Neosho Daily News in September of 1942.

 

Starting the week of February 3, I was in touch with the Dick McCoy family. Their wedding anniversary was February 6 and on that day they called to thank my wife and I for sending something that lightened up a gloomy day in Omaha, Nebraska.

 

Each time a telephone conversation transpires between the McCoy’s and the Hall’s an inquiry comes from Dick. This time he wanted to know where Elroy Face was and how he was doing. I shared with the McCoy’s what I knew and sent along a couple of You Tube videos of his former teammate when Face was still in the Brooklyn Dodger organization. Here is one that was shared with McCoy. www.youtube.com/watch?v=qijciAIlQNE This link reminds me what would happen if I were asked to throw out the first pitch. www.mlb.com/pirates/video/faces-ceremonial-first-pitch/c-...

After a few minutes of talking about who McCoy has been in contact lately from the old Brooklyn Dodger minor league system, which recently has dwindled to Gene Castiglione and Loren Doll, he inquired what I was doing. It is sort of embarrassing to say “Nothing.” So, I told him I was looking at old newspaper articles regarding a former minor league ballplayer from Taylorville, Illinois. Bingo!!! That got McCoy going.

 

Back in 1951 and 1954 McCoy drove from Omaha to the Dodger Spring training facility at Vero Beach, Florida. He recalled stopping in Taylorville, Ill. to pick up Kenny Funstin. In doing my initial research it was obvious that Taylorville wasn’t an entirely peaceful mecca. When I asked McCoy of his impression he said that he and Funstin went out the night of the stopover, for a couple of beers, and it was obviously a small, tough town.

 

So, as you read some of the anecdotes that have been compiled from the life of Adolph, with a laundry list of nicknames, Arlitt, keep McCoy’s comments in mind about how tough it was in Taylorville.

Decatur, Ill. Herald January 14, 1909-Fast driving but not with a car

 

This is a story about Adolph Arlitt Sr.-- Hard Driving Kills Horse--The following men are to appear before Judge William Pierce Thursday charged with fast driving. Adolph Arlitt, Fritz Peltzman, William Horsethenke and William Ruchett. Several days ago a horse belonging to John Hinden, driven by the men of Nokomis, died shortly after arriving at the barn here. Complaints were filed and the men will stand trial. On the 16th of January this report appeared. The trial if Adolph Arlitt, Fritz Peltzman and William on a charge of fast driving, was continued until January 21.

Daily Times Davenport, Iowa-April 25, 1921

 

Taylorville, Ill.., April 25--While playing along the banks of a creek near Kincaid, (Ill.;) Adolph Arlitt, 8 years old, was accidentally shot with a .32 caliber revolver in the hands of Charles Obrigheit, 13 years old, who then made an attempt to kill himself. Both will recover.

 

The Decatur, lll., Herald carried an expanded version of the above story. Lad Accidentally shoots Companion; Tries to kill self. Taylorville April 23---Adolph Arlitt, aged eight years, was accidentally shot by Charles Obrigheit, aged thirteen, about 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon, while they were at play with a crowd of other boys near Kincaid. After the accident Obrigheit turned the gun on himself. Both boys were brought to St. Vincent's hospital here, where it was found that neither was dangerously wounded.

 

The revolver was of thirty-two caliber. The bullet which struck Arlitt penetrated his left lung. He suffered a hemorrhage after being removed to the hospital but is well out of danger now. The shot fired by Obrigheit in his attempt at suicide entered just below the heart. The wound is not serious. That the shooting was accidental is not questioned.

 

• Decatur Sunday Herald and Review April 9. 1933

 

This insert needs a bit of introduction. In this edition it mentioned that optimism was high for it marked the first time beer had been legal to purchase in 13 years. Prohibition had ended. Also, this coal mining area, as well as others around this country, were hot spots of mining strikes and all the violence affiliated with it. The National Guard was assigned to these areas. The very week beer was again for sale, legally, the boys were at it.

 

11 Youths Seized for Disturbance in Mine War Zone—Group charged with challenging quintet to fight at Jeiseyille dance. Taylorville—Herded into the “bull pen” of the county jail late Friday night by the Langley military police patrol for “mine war” fisticuffs, Adolph Arlitt, Noble Pruett, John and Charles Fecho, Fred Clark, Jr., Ludwig Szelyar, Alfred Droschi, Jetho Fione, Frank and Alex Querio and Fred Bertone, all of Jeiseyville, were still in custody Saturday. State’s Attorney John W. Coale left for the Democratic Judicial convention in Vandalia after filing a complaint in Justice L. J. Traylor’s court charging the 11 youths with disturbing the peace and challenging John and William Kastellic, Frank Kositz, Aldo Marconi and Ralph Vedas to fight. According to the attorney who interviewed the youths in jail the disturbance occurred at a dance at Jeiseyville. The youths had not been arraigned for bond yet Saturday evening. The original complaint against them was made by Mrs. E. Burke 1008 West Poplar street.

Nine months later another incident occurred and this time it was Buzz Arlitt’s father in the midst of the fray.

 

• The Edwardsville, Ill. Intelligencer January 25, 1934

 

Eight persons, including Mayor Felix Cravere of Jeiseyville, were arrested yesterday charged with assault to kill following investigation by county authorities of a gun battle near Jeiseyville in which Sam White, a teamster, was wounded. Those arrested were Fred Wigg, Adolph Arlitt, Mike Prodek, Fred Clark Jr., Louis Szolyar, Buggs Dervochi, Nobel Pruitt and Cravero. Al were released on bond of $1,000 pending trial scheduled for January 31. The men were accused by White and his foster son, George McGuire, who said they were fired on, on their way home . Whit was struck in the face by four shotgun slugs. He was taken to a local hospital where his condition is not considered dangerous.

 

• Miami Daily News Record Sept. 10, 1934

 

Springfield, Mo., Sept. 10—(AP)—Springfield needed only a victory in its Western association playoff with Ponca City to hold on to the league championship… With the scored tied and two out in the ninth, Adolph Arlitt, Red Bird first sacker, smacked out a burning hit to the left field wall to score Howard from first with the winning tally.

Ed note: The Howard who scored the winning run was Frank “Goldie” Howard. He managed the Chanute Kansas Owls in 1946 while Arlitt was managing the Carthage Cardinals.

•Brooklyn, New York Daily Eagle Oct. 23, 1934

Baseball Battler—Taller than Primo Carnera-- www.britannica.com/biography/Primo-Carnera

 

Adolph Arlitt, first baseman of the Springfield Cardinals of the Western Association last season will go back to boxing this winter. Arlitt has had almost 50 fights as an amateur and 12 as a professional heavyweight. He weight 225 pound and is six feet seven inches tall

 

•The Hutchinson News April 27, 1938

 

Most heartbreaking news for Hutchinson feminine baseball fans was that Buss Arlitt, handsome Carthage manager, is married. ..(Hugh) Mullen (Hutchinson manager) blames half of his sleepless nights on the calls Buzz has to answer from sweet young things.

 

Ed comment: Porter Wittich had a paragraph regarding Arlitt’s plan to marry in the January 1, 1938 edition of the Joplin News Herald. There was no mention of the name of the bride to be but Wittich noted that the wedding was occurring in a leap year. During the 1938 season there were articles about Mrs. Arlitt playing golf at Schifferdecker Park in Joplin and being a little “too casual” about the way she marked her scorecard. She was hurt in an automobile accident, along with another Carthage couple, when returning from a game in Neosho, in July of that same year.. Something transpired between 1938 and Arlitt’s return to Carthage after WW II, with his first wife. The Joplin Globe mentioned the name of obviously a new wife who Arlitt stated he married in 1944. There was a name on his Selective Service record that he filed in 1940, in Carthage, and I believe it was the last name of his first wife—Weidler.

 

•Joplin Globe April 1, 1939.

 

Carthage, Mo., March 31—E. L. Dale, President of the Carthage Baseball Association, Manager Adolph Arlitt of the Carthage Pirates, John Pavlich, David Perkins and Mrs. Dale and daughter, Carolyn, left early this morning for Hutchinson, Kan. Arlitt, Pavlich and Perkins will participate in spring training.

Dave Perkins story—Yours truly knew Dave, his wife Virginia and their two sons Ronnie and Jack. The Perkins boys and I attended the same grade and high school and we all attended the same church. Prior to that the parents of Dave Perkins attended the church where my grandfather pastored in the 1930’s. We called grandma Perkins, “Old Ma Perkins” due to a radio program, sponsored by Oxydol, by that name. I preface what I have to say with the foregoing for I knew and respected the Perkins family.

 

However, a story I heard from my youth, from all the Perkins family, was that Dave was offered a chance to sign with the New York Yankees and that he would have wound up with that job over Yogi Berra. The only thing that held Dave back, as the story goes, was that his mother wouldn’t let him go to New York. So, I guess he had to settle for second best. He did tryout for the Carthage Pirates along with a couple of other Carthage boys but they wound up playing twilight baseball for amateur teams in town. The last time I saw Dave was from the pulpit of the Church of the Nazarene in Carthage, MO. I was exhorting the “masses” as Dave sat on the back row, smiling and giving me moral support.

 

•Hutchinson News April 8, 1939

 

Mrs. Jimmy Jordan watched the new Hutchinson boss play two years with the Brooklyn Dodgers before they ever met… www.baseballreference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=jordan0...

(Arlitt replaced Jordan as manager during the middle of the next year. Carthage trained at Hutchinson in 1939) Adolph “Buzz” Arlitt, Carthage Pirates manager, spent the winter at his vocation, selling auto equipment, and avocation, bass fishing. He thinks Missouri “is the greatest state in the union—because the bass fishing is so good.” (Ed note: After moving to Oregon he made news by catching a 32 pound bass in 1947.)

 

This is another article about the 1938 Carthage Pirates in that same paper. “The brothers Knoblauch, Irvin and Charles, had considerably different winter jobs. Last year’s Carthage shortstop, Irvin, worked in a Pennsylvania shirt factory… Charles, who played second base on the Hutchinson Class D farm team worked for a Carthage undertaker. (Ed note: Charles had a reason for working at the Knell Mortuary, he was dating one of the Knell triplets and they married and moved to California. The other two of the triplets were Bob and Frank who ran the concession for the Carthage Pirates that year. That was before they took over the mortuary business from their folks.)

 

•Northwest Arkansas Times May 29, 1939

 

Oh boy, what a headache! After winning 12 straight at home, the (Fayetteville) Angels lost three in a row. Nobody begrudged Fred Hawn’s Redbird’ victory Saturday night but the double loss to Adolph Arlitt’s comical crew (Carthage) on Sunday was a bitter capsule to swallow… Just for a sample, here was Sunday’s first inning. Each “bing” is a base hit for Carthage and each “poop” an error for Fayetteville. Bing…bing…bing.. poop…bing…poop…poop. Get it? Four hits and three errors in the first inning and right away Carthage has five big fat juicy runs. And so on.

 

•Jefferson City, MO Post-Tribune July 3, 1940

 

St. Joseph, Mo., July 3, (AP)—Advice to Western Association pitchers; Just because he comes from a class D league, don’t give Hutchinson’s new manager, Adolph (Buzz) Arlitt, any fat ones. Arlitt’s own slugging helped him manage the Carthage Pirates to the first half championship of the Arkansas-Missouri league, which folded Monday. It helped him lead the club into the playoffs in 1938 and 1939, too. For 55 games this season Buzz slugged at a .357 pace. He slammed 12 homers and drove in 58 runs. In one recent game at Neosho, he hit three successive homers his first three times up. On the fourth, instead of shooting at some kind of a record for distance clouts, he bunted, for a sacrifice. On his fifth trip, he tripled—for a perfect night at bat. He drove in eight runs, scored four and hit for 15 total bases. His homers were off both right and lefthanders and he sailed one over the centerfield fence, one over left and one over the right field wall. One Sunday last season, he poled four straight homers—one on his last trip in the opener of a doubleheader and three on his first three tries in the nightcap at Monett, Mo. Arlitt takes charge of Hutchinson tonight.

 

•Joplin Globe January 25, 1942

 

Adolph Arlitt, that huge piece of physical makeup who once played for Springfield in this league and who once controlled Carthage, enlists in the navy tomorrow.

 

•The Hutchinson News April 28, 1942

 

Pvt. Adolph Arlitt who skippered the Hutchinson Pirates at the close of the 1940 season, is working in a canteen and playing baseball on the San Diego Naval training station baseball team, according to a letter from Stewart Alexander, Hutchinson boy, also now stationed at San Diego, Alexander wrote to P. J. Fossey, reporting he'd scarcely landed in San Diego before bumping into Arlitt at the canteen.

 

•Neosho Daily News Sept. 26, 1942

 

Buzz Arlitt Still Grows

 

Adolph “Buzz,” “Junior,” “Double-Dip,” “Flop Ears,” and many other nicknames, Arlitt, former player in the Arkansas-Missouri League, has gained 1 and 3-4 inches in height and 20 pounds in weight since enlisting in the Navy last January 26. Arlitt is now a second class petty officer and athletic director at the San Diego naval base and is the assistant to Lt. Commander George O’Brien, motion picture star who is now in charge of navy athletics. www.google.com/search?q=george+o%27brien+movies&safe=...:

In addition to his phenomenal “growth,” “Buzz” has underwent another change. He was a first baseman in the Ark.-Mo. league as many Neosho people have seen him, but he is now the navy’s star pitcher. During the last season he pitched his sailor team to 11 wins against 4 defeats

 

Arlitt will play on the naval base football team this fall and basketball later this winter. He was granted a 10 days leave from the navy and is home at Carthage visiting friends. He assisted in a navy broadcast from WMBH this morning. (WMBH was a Joplin radio station.—At that point in history Carthage didn’t have one.)

 

The Joplin Globe provided more details in their September 26, 1942 edition

 

Arlitt, Now in Navy, Puts on Heft—A “Slump” Got him Into Service

 

Official naval record show that Adolph (Buzz) Arlitt, well-known district baseball plyer and manage, has gained 1 ¾ inches in height and 20 pounds in weight since he enlisted in the navy here last January 26. (Ed note: For those who might miss the humor, the height gain was when he stood erect after slouching in order to be inducted.)

 

The records, though official, are not correct, however. Arlitt who is 6 feet 5 3/4 inches tall, was an inch and three-quarters over the limit set by the navy and marine corps. After trying six timed to join the navy and twice to enter the marine corps, Arlitt finally had the idea of slumping somewhat and bending his knees when he was examined for enlistment. The examiner, Joe Cehlar, in charge of the navy recruiting office here, put his height down as exactly the maximum allowed by the navy, Arlitt weighs 232 pounds.

 

Arlitt, since his enlistment, has gained four ranks in the navy and is now a second class petty officer. He is an athletic director at the San Diego naval base and is assistant to Lieutenant Commander George O’Brien, motion picture star who is now in charge of navy athletics.

 

In addition to his phenomenal “growth,” (all uttered as tongue in cheek) Arlitt underwent another unusual change. A first baseman was well as being manager at Monett, Carthage and Hutchinson, Kan., in the Arkansas-Missouri League in the Western Association, Arlitt has been converted into the navy’s star pitcher. During the last season he pitched his team to 11 wins against four losses. He pitched a 13-inning game against the San Diego Padres, Pacific Coast League nine, and lost by 5 to 4 after his shortstop made five errors behind him. He also defeated the marine base team.

 

Arlitt will play on the naval base football team this fall and winter and will also play basketball. He is on a ten day leave and is visiting friends in Carthage. He and Warrant Officer Cehlar will give a navy broadcast at 11:30 o’clock this morning from WMBH.

 

•Joplin Globe July 21, 1946

 

Father of Mrs. Arlitt --Dies in Oregon at 75

Carthage Mo.,--Word has been received here of the death yesterday morning of W. H. Eickwork, 75 years old, father of Mrs. Adolph Arlitt, 1220 Olive street, at his home in Empire, Ore., following a heart attack. He was born in Germany came to America when he was four years old. He had lived virtually all of his life in Oregon. He served with a Kansas unit in the Spanish-American war and was wounded. Surviving besides the daughter here, are his widow and four other daughters, and one son. Mrs. Arlitt, who recently underwent surgery McCune-Brooks hospital, will be unable to attend the funeral services. Her husband is manager of the Carthage Cardinals.

 

•Iola, Kansas Register September 11, 1946

 

“Buzz” Arlitt, big first baseman-manager of the Carthage Cardinals, has been given his unconditional release by President George A. Rush of the Carthage club.

 

Arlitt was popular at Carthage but had made known some time ago, it is reported, that in 1947 it would be with the St. Louis Cardinals connected with Carthage or himself—not both. He didn’t approve of the way the St. Louis National league team worked with Carthage this year.

 

The Cardinals have promised to find a new manager for Carthage, preferably a veteran catcher. If the manager is not a catcher they intend to have a veteran backstop on hand, plus a veteran infielder and a veteran outfielder.

 

Carthage had an unusually young team this season, possibly reflecting a policy of the parent Cardinals to try out new finds on the K-O-M club. A number of them proved to be able players, even though only 17 or 18 years of age. Arlitt has left for his home in Empire, Oregon.

 

Ed comment:

 

With hindsight being perfect the Cardinals didn’t live up to their promises for 1947. They didn’t send along an experienced catcher rather they named Carthage resident, Woody Fair, to manage the club after he had a great year with the Durham, NC Bulls in 1946. According to Fletcher Cupp, of the Carthage Press, Fair only struck out three times in his MVP season with the Bulls.

 

The Cardinals ignored Fair just as they had done Arlitt. Yours truly talked with Fair many times in his twilight years and he was still upset the Cardinals wouldn’t send any talent to the club. He chucked it to the Cardinals in mid-season and went back to the Carolina league. The Cardinals brought in Al Kluttz to manage the rest of the 1947 season and was then to continue through 1948. He made it about a half season, of that second year, before being replaced by an assortment of roster players to lead the team to oblivion. At the close of the 1948 season the Cardinals cut Carthage loose from their system and for a while my old hometown didn’t know if that would be the end of baseball or if they would have to become an independent team. The Chicago Cubs came to the rescue and gave Carthage some good players but ultimately gave them the shaft during the 1951 season that eventuated in their not being able to field a team in 1952.

Adolph Arlitt, Empire was fined $5 in Coos Bay justice of the peace court on the charge of driving a truck without mud flaps.

 

•Carthage Evening Press April 25, 1963—Written by Jack Harshaw

 

Adolph Buzz Arlitt, remembered by many Carthage baseball fans from the Ark. Mo league days of 25 years ago, and the KOM league in 1946, sends along his regards to all his former baseball friends from his home in Empire, Ore.

Arlitt, contacted in regard to a recent bit of reminiscing about the debut of professional baseball in Carthage in 1938, notes he cannot supply any additional information since he has lost contact with his former players. And his present home is remote from baseball, other than that seen on television. The weather does not permit a good baseball season, although there was a Sunday league in operation there from 1947 to 1957. Buzz remained active as a player until 1953 “when the legs began to go.” He turned to umpiring and called them until baseball folded in 1957.

 

From 1947 until March of last year, Arlitt worked for Evans Products company when the company closed down permanently. Arlitt and his wife, Mary, were able to get in some camping and hunting (the things they ways said they were going to do.) They also tried their hand at harvesting strawberries and string beans just because they always wanted to try it. Since mid-June he has been employed by the city of Empire.

 

The Arlitt’s daughter, Louise, who was with them in Carthage, in 1946 lives just a mile from them with her five boys, aged 2 to 11 years, he reports. Mrs. Arlitt underwent knee surgery in February but is now returning to normal and both ae looking forward to retirement age when they can resort to trailer-house living and roam around the count.

 

“Give my best regards to all the old-time fans from the Ark-.Mo league, also all the fans from the KOM league of 1946. Each year at Christmas time we hear from the Paul Weithoners, the Ivan Boyds and Edna Gilbreath. Sure would be nice again to walk a few times around your city square and say hello to all you’d meet. “Pleasant memories have been brought to light again through this contact.”

 

The next document found on Arlitt was his obituary some 29 years after he penned the foregoing note to Jack Harshaw. Since that memory laden letter was sent to Harshaw some 56 years have passed and oh, so swiftly. Like Arlitt, it would be great to walk around the Carthage town square one more time. However, if it were possible, no one would be recognized and neither would the stores lining the sidewalks. The only thing Buzz or Yours truly would find much as it was in that bygone era would be the Jasper County Court House.

 

•Coos Bay, Oregon November 14 1992

 

Memorial services for Adolph “Buzz” Arlitt , 80 of Roseburg, will be held at 11 a. m. Saturday, Nov. 14, at the Veterans Hospital in Roseburg, Services are under the direction of Wilson’s Chapel of the Roses in Roseburg. He died No. 10, 1992 at Roseburg of complications of a heart attack. He played professional baseball for the Pittsburg(h) Pirates as a pitcher and first baseman. He also managed the farm team for the St. Louis Cardinals for many years. During WW II he served with the Navy and took part in the invasion of Okinawa, Japan. He married Mary Eickwork in 1944 and they moved to the Coos Bay area, where he worked for Evans Products from 1946 to 1962. He was active with the Empire Fire Department and played baseball with the Lumberjacks, starting in 1947. He is survived by his wife, Mary Arlitt of Roseburg; daughter Louise Hargens, five grandsons, six great grandchildren, as well as relatives in Florida.

From the “newly-weds

 

Thank you so much for sending Jodi a message that you could not make it to our 70th anniversary, We knew and certainly didn't not expect any of you to come out of town people friends. We wanted you to know about our 70th anniversary and the open house are children are having for us.

 

No gifts just you good wishes and love is all we need. Thanks for your friendship all these years.

 

We have been so lucky to be able to have all these years together, Dick has finished his chemo treatments, 55 in all plus the 12 weeks of radiation. It has taken the toll on his body but so far everything is doing ok and he has 3 months of no treatment and we'll see how he does. Lots of prayers from everyone is helping so keep them up for him. Our anniversary is really the 6th of February but we had to have it a little later to get around the Super Bowl and a few other things. I will turn 90 the 20th of February and Dick will catch up with me the 7th of September. Talk with you later. Dick had a nice letter from Loren Doll a few weeks ago and still talks with Gene Castiglione every couple of weeks. Thanks for your friendship and all these years. Love Molly and Dick

 

Ed note:

 

A telephone call was received on February 6th. It just so happened that some flowers had arrived at her front door and she was telling me about them. That call was better than a “Thank you” note in the mail.

 

Sally D. Francisco Gallery at Peters Valley School of Craft

August 10- October 20, 2013

 

This exhibition celebrates the more than thirty year history of workshops firing this first public access, anagama kiln built by Katsuyuki Sakazume in 1980. An anagama is fueled by wood and requires continuous stoking to build temperature. The exhibition features a selection of work made by ceramic artists who have fired Peters Valley's anagama kiln. The work is representative of the evolution of woodfiring in the United States since the late 1970's.

 

The works included in "Riding the Wave" exemplify a variety of results attributed to anagama firing. The artist's degrees of predictability and the kiln's contrasting elements of surprise, have resulted in its increasing popularity over the last few decades.

 

Participating artists: Michael Angelotti, Nolan Baumgartner, Bennett Bean, Joel Brown, Peter Callas, Paul Chaleff, John Chalke, Chris Chariw, Robert Cloughley, Tom Collins, Karen Copensky, Danny Crocco, Danny Crump, Bruce Dehnert, John Dix, Francine Epstein, Mary Fretz, Sarah M.
