Pit firing is the first method that humans used to fire pottery almost 30,000 years ago.
It was considered a great milestone in the development of civilization – in part because people were tired of drinking their wine out of wooden buckets.
With such an interesting story behind these pieces, and their ethereal smokey qualities with small splashes of textures and depth, pit-fired pottery makes a welcome gift for someone who likes unique and eclectic pieces.
I find looking at them is a relaxing experience akin to laying on my back and looking at shapes in the clouds.
