As some of you may know from my previous post, this week I completed my first pit firing. This ancient technique is the first used by man to fire pottery.
Pit firing is a pottery firing technique that I have been keen to try for some time. And I will be far from the first to do so. You see this is the oldest known method of firing pottery known to man. Pit fired pieces that have been found have been dated back to 29,000 to 25,000 BCE.
