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.

thanks for reading and commenting, Olivia! It means a lot that folks are interested in my work 🙏
There’s so much character in these pieces, as if each has a unique story to tell. Sort of like battle scars, too. They’ve literally “been through the fire,” I suppose. Nice work! 🙂
thank you! and yes, very much been through the fire, covered in soot and scrubbed clean then brought to a shine 🙂
Beautiful pieces, a depth of texture that resonates. I liked Mike’s comment about battle scars, that’s very fitting.
thank you Juliette! 🙏 I thought the battle scars were very fitting as well. 🙂
Each one beautiful and unique! ❤️
