pit firing

a few pictures from the pit firing of green ware that we did this past sunday. sawdust, small sticks and newspaper which is started by a hot teepee fire on top which burned for about an hour to make some hot coals. then everything is covered with a piece of metal roofing with dirt on top of that for insulation. it burned overnight. grandfather fire gave us successfully fired clay pieces, no breakage. wow!

Wow BF! I am glad it was such a success for you and that your wares came out unscathed. I had a powerfully busy weekend (working with intent no doubt), though I thought of you, knowing that it was equally powerful for you.

Your posts are an inspiration!
