Firing

I’m working on an installation for a show in January, that involves making many little ceramic vessels and firing them in my garden. It’s been really exciting to learn the whole process, from digging the clay out of the ground through to the final, fired object.

I’ve had a few goes at it now and I’m getting much more reliable, with less exploded pots each time. Now, I just need to make as many as I can before summer kicks in and the fire bans start.

  1. You clever thing you! Your pictures remind me of a visit to a pottery in southern Mexico where they made a unique black pottery. Where did you get your firing method from?
