“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
Pit firing is the first method that humans used to fire pottery almost 30,000 years ago, and that potters use today.
It was considered a great milestone in the development of civilization and some of this pottery has lasted to this very day (likely not so good for holding things now)! As a potter, I am grateful to be a part of this tradition that roots me to the earliest versions of ourselves.
