Pit Firing :: A Week Of ...

For the week I’ve been pit firing all the pieces that I’ve made over the last two months. Along with that I’ve been building an e-commerce backend to this site that will go live as soon as I can finish it.

These two pieces are part of the ten that are now completely finished. That is they have been run from the bisque firing, to being sagger wrapped, to pit fired, to the final design coloring. It’s been a lot of work to get to this point and I’m pretty damn happy where things are right now. That happiness is not dampened by the 20% loss in the firing stage … it’s just a part of the process.
