I love making these!!!! Small, warm, and full of life these little guys are sure to brighten your day! These were thrown on the potters wheel and then decorated with slip. They were then stacked rim to rim and fired for four days in a wood fired anagama kiln.

Bowl is 5 1/4" wide and 2" tall

About wood Firing
Wood firing is a labor of love! After the pottery is thrown and trimmed on the wheel using either stoneware or porcelain, it is fired in an electric kiln to about 1800 degrees F. This first firing is called the bisque firing and its purpose is to remove all the water from the clay and strengthen it for glazing. Then the pot is glazed. Most of my pots are glazed using different combinations of wood ash(a by-product from the wood kiln) clay, water and feldspar. After the pots are glazed they are put on clay stilts called "wads" The wads or wadding keeps the pottery from sticking to the kiln shelves. It also leaves a light colored mark on the bottom of the pots and lids. After the pot is "wadded" it gets loaded into the kiln and fired to 2400 degrees F. This process takes between 36 hours and six days of around the clock stoking of wood. During this process the ash from the wood floats through the kiln and lands on the pots. When the kiln gets hot enough the ash melts and forms a glaze that can range in color from brown to green to blue. After the kiln is fired the pots take three full days to cool down
