Soda firing is a process similar to salt glazing, but minus the harmful pollutants. Soda firing uses sodium bicarbonate and/or soda ash introduced into the kiln at peak temperature to produce a hard, safe glaze. The soda vapors swirl unpredictably in the kiln, changing the glazes in wonderful and often surprising ways. Hitting the pot from various angles, the vapors produce warm orange colored flashing on the naked clay and where thick, often an orange-peel texture.

Soda firing is an exciting process and can produce results that range from the earthy ruggedness of stoneware to the refined elegance of glazed porcelain.

NOTE: the bottoms of soda fired pots are lifted on wads of clay to protect them from sticking to the kiln shelves. These wads leave white marks on the feet of pots. Additionally, soda may bubble up from the shelf further scarring the bottom. All marks are carefully scraped down and sanded smooth to protect your furniture.
