2nd Pit Firing 2017

Last weekend my husband and I dug out the fire pit, chopped a bunch of wood and ran our second pit firing this summer.  I’m more than pleased with the results and all the new pots are now up for sale here.

New Pots!

The atmosphere in the pit was a bit more subdued this time.

I think it fired a little cooler than our previous fire this summer.

The pots that came out of this firing are over all very black and white, but I am really digging the subtle lines and gentle splashes of color amid the smokey greys.

One of my favorites <3

I experimented with some carved pots too.

Loving that splash of red <3

I could share so many pots from this firing. It’s hard to pick the highlights for this post. I’ll share just one more. This pot is the smallest one put in the flames, but it caught both my eye and my husband’s right away when we pulled it out.

It feels nice to be sharing some success and not struggles this time 🙂 I’m hoping to fit another pit firing in before the weather gets too cold, but we’ll see what happens. I’m currently in a rush to get everything finished up before we head up for the Cheeseburger in Caseville festival. I’m working on some shot glasses among other things, and  I will be running  a glaze firing soon.

I will for sure be up at the Wooded Island Sports Grill with a lot of pottery to sell on August 17th, 18th and 19th from 4:00pm-8:00pm. Thanks and take care <3
