Collection: Wood Fired Ceramics
When I make Wood Fired Pottery it all starts like any other pots. I throw the pots on the potters wheel, trim and sometimes texture or carve them. The finished pots are then left to dry completely.
After the pots have been bisque fired - which I do in an electric kiln, the pots are placed in a large stone kiln and fired with wood to approximately 1300 degree (celsius).
Wood, when burned, creates ash which floats through the atmosphere of the kiln and falls on the surfaces of the pots.
Wood Fired Ceramics takes much more time to do - typically 3-4 days (or more) of hard work. Therefore it is also a bit more expensive than electric fired pottery. But what you get is something very unique. Pottery for life.
