Dian Magie became a full time potter following her position as Director of the UNC Center for Craft, Creativity and Design, from 2000-2010. She was responsible for bringing Nina Hole in 2006 to create one of her fire sculptures at Appalachian State University during a residency working with students from WNC colleges and Universities. Dian attended numerous workshops at Penland, Arrowmont and La Meridiana in Italy since moving to North Carolina in 2000, and for the last 15 years has assisted potter Judith Duff in loading and firing her train kiln. In 2012 she built a fast fire, cross-draft wood kiln with 36 cubic feet of ware space designed by Will Baker for its ease of loading and stoking, firing four times a year.
Magie's kiln is a cross draft, sprung arch with interior fire box and 36 cu ft stacking area.
