These beads were fired in the wood kiln. A wood-fire kiln is a very different process than raku. To learn more about what goes into wood-firing, please check out my husband's website http://splitfirepottery.com.

Wood-fired beads are very unique. I am fortunate to be one of very few people in the U.S. who has the opportunity to fire beads using this process (google wood-fired beads "images"). The process that I use with beads varies, so the price of this set is reflective of the time that goes into making this particular style.


Thanks for looking! Mary Ann

THE BEAD PROCESS:

- Individually hand-crafted
- Dried and then smoothed with a sponge
- Bisque fired to about 1850 degrees F (1000 C)
- Glazed with about 3 coats of glaze
- Fired again to about to 2200 degrees F (1240 C)

NOTE: Not all ceramic beads on the market are created equal. Please be aware that those that are commercially made or come from other countries may not adhere to the same standards that the law allows in the United States. These beads are lead free.
