Pit Firing: Step-by-step Instructions

Pit Firing:  Step-by-step Instructions

Here are the step-by-step instructions on doing a pit firing!  It was great fun! Fast, easy, and interesting results!

I know that this is a far step from the high fire glazes that I’m striving for and it does take me in another direction, but…it’s available! So I take advantage of these opportunities to learn!

Here are the pics and steps at the Murwillumbah Potters Group.
Ann Lee is the leader and guru of all things pottery!
Click on each small pic and it will go to a slide show and a larger version of all the pics!

One more thing!  Click HERE to see the fantastic posts at Mud Colony!!! Yeah! more pottery!

Chill and be chilled,

    Thanks, I’ve done one pit firing and loved the results but it’s always good to see what other people are doing and what I can learn from their experience.
