Collection: Pit Fired Pottery

Pit Fired Pottery is one of the oldest methods of firing ceramics known to man. Basically pots made of clay are just places in a wood fire to harden (vitrify) and become ceramics. People have done this all over the world for thousands of years.

In recent years Pit Fired Pottery have gained renewed attention - not the least because of the amazing and very unique colors that can be created.

All the Pit Fired pots I make is first thrown on the potters wheel. I use both stoneware and porcelain. And using porcelain is actually quite unique.

Many potters will tell you its not possible to Pit Fire porcelain because of its fragile nature. It cracks. But I found ways to Pit Fire porcelain so it never cracks and in return you get some of the most amazing and intense colors. 

I Pit Fired using a combination of organic materials  - wood, sawdust, banana peels, straw and coffee ground mixed with oxides, chloride, baking powder and salts.

Each of the ingredients contribute to the ocean of colors.

Pit Fire is by nature a very unpredictable fire technique. Every piece is 100% unique.
