Pit firing is the first method that humans used to fire pottery almost 30,000 years ago.
That’s a tremendously long time!
Pottery was considered a great milestone in the development of civilization – in part because people were tired of drinking their wine out of wooden buckets.
Pit-fired pottery in particular fascinates me with its ethereal smokiness and small splashes of texture and depth.
I find looking at them is a relaxing experience akin to laying on my back and looking at shapes in the clouds.
What is something you’ve seen when looking up at the clouds?
