WOOD FIRED CONTAINERS
Wood firing is an arduous and time consuming method of firing ceramics. It requires long shifts to man and stoke the kiln; and robust ware to survive the rigours of the firing process. Wood fired pieces feature a raw, earthy finish, with subtle and often surprising flashes of colour from the flames and fly ash.
No two pieces are ever the same. The wood kiln takes numerous weekends of wood splitting and stacking along with kiln maintenance; followed by solid and intense days of firing and a long cool down period. Finally before being made available, the work needs cleaning and the feet ground smooth.
**Because wood fired pots take so much more time and energy to create, please understand they have to be more expensive than pots made in an electric or gas kiln.
