This class will focus on pit firing technique that often yields remarkable surface effects on decorative ware. Vibrant and exciting colorful designs are imprinted on unglazed clay forms by dancing flames carrying fumes from selected combustible materials and chemicals.

Clay objects are prepared for the pit using hand building or wheel thrown methods, finished forms are then burnished to get a high sheen. Use of terra sigilata will be encouraged. Low bisque (cone 08 max) pieces are placed within a carefully constructed pit and combustibles that the pieces are flame painted (fumed by chemicals and vapors from the combustibles) as they are exposed to oxidation and reduction atmospheres.
