One of the highlights from NCECA was getting to meet Gail Nichols and viewing two of her magnificent bowls at an exhibition. Gail gave a slide presentation and talked about where she lives in Australia, her kilns, pots, and firing process. These two bowls were awesome. If I would have been in the gallery alone I'd probably have licked them! That's how juicy they were. They were quite big, I guess 16 to 18 inches in diameter.
If you are in interested in soda firing you should checked out Gail's book it is packed with information.
