Pit Fired Pot 25. 12x6cm
The pit firing process is unpredictable and exciting. First you need to throw the pot, then finish, bisque fire and finally immerse in the hot flames of an outdoor pit fire. Through burning organic matter with the pot, some fantastic smokey and subtle colours can be made. This unique pot is finished with a touch of varnish and still smells slightly of the fire that made it! This particular piece has a raku crackle effect from the firing process and some of the terra sigliata has peeled, but I like the rustic final effect. I hope you do too.
