WOOD-FIRED

The wood-fired pots are fired to 1350°C in a reduction-rich atmosphere, creating natural fly ash glazed surfaces. Paul and Nina been experimenting with a wide range of traditional wood-fired glazes and slips. Wood-firing allows them to use a minimal amount of glazes as they can rely on the process leaving its mark on each piece.

Burning wood also produces fly ash which settles on the pots during the firing and forms a natural ash glaze. The length of firing depends of the kiln being used and the desired effects. The smaller “coffin” kiln can be fast-fired in around 12 hours and the anagama takes at least 72 hours.
