Birdhouse or Hanging Planter

50.00

This piece was fired in a pit in San Francisco, Ca on Ocean Beach.  I fired it for over 15 hours with sawdust, wood, salt, copper and other colorants.

Pit fired pieces are not designed for functionality and will not hold water because they are fired at low temperature. Plastic sleeve inserts can be purchases to make this a vase that will hold water :)

Pit firing is the original method for firing and hardening clay and dates back nearly 30,000 years ago.  This process is done typically in a hole in the ground or pit, where pots are placed in the pit and burned.  Pit firing is an atmospheric process where all of the colors and patterns are derived from the process and what is consumed in the fire.  Burned materials will vaporize and absorb into the pottery pieces in the pit.  If the pieces are hot enough to have their pores open the colored vapor will enter the pore and stay there.
