Well, I didn't really have a step by step process for making this piece. The entire thing was improv, right down to the actual sculpt itself. I just grabbed a lump of clay and went for it. I did make sure I kept all of the edges smooth and flowing. I didn't have a method for the burn materials either, I just threw stuff on there that was close and weird just to see what happened. I only knew I wanted to put salt on the piece because I thought it would burn pink or blue. I think this technique is so different from normal firings because of the actual interaction you have with the pieces as they are firing. Usually you would just pile all the stuff in a kiln and turn it on, but for pit fires you actually have to generate the heat yourself. I think this helps you appreciate the pottery that much more because the volatility of the situation is much more apparent. I liked this project a lot in the end because it was fairly simple, but was always a surprise. I would definitely do pit fire pieces in the future because I like the experience of getting to sit around the fire as the piece burned down and I also liked trying my luck with flammable materials.
