Gallery 1: Pit Fired Work

The surface of my burnished pots is very important to me; they must be satiny smooth with depth of colour and pattern resulting in a vessel that begs to be touched.

Pit fired pottery has no glaze. The surface shine is due to the time spent burnishing the clay with a stone during the leather hard stage and again when dry. The colour comes from the fire and the combustibles used such as sawdust, seaweed, dog food and oxides such as copper. These clay vessels are decorative and will not hold water.
