Event description

Description

Its a Pit Firing Party!

Pit firing is the oldest known method for the firing of pottery. Unfired pots are nestled together in a pit in the ground and are then covered with combustible materials such as wood shavings, leaves, metal oxides, salts, sawdust and dried manure. The filled pit is then set on fire and carefully tended until most of the inner fuel has been consumed. After cooling, pots are removed and cleaned to reveal patterns and colours left by ash and salt deposits. Pots may then be waxed and buffed to create a smooth glossy finish.

Firing $45 *can bring up to two pieces for the firing

Bring your own piece or ceramic pieces are available for sale in studio $15/ea.
