These pots are hand thrown and burnished, fired with wood in a steel oil drum.The fuming process results from the application of copper sulphate, ferric chloride, wood shavings, pine needles and salt(sometimes a little sugar), all combined with flame and smoke.The surface effects can be spectacular with each piece being totally individual.
Barrel fired ceramics are for decoration only and not intended to hold liquid due to the low fired porous clay body.
After care: If you wish you can apply more wax polish to give a rich patina that may deepen with age.
