  1. OMW! These are gorgeous! They have a bronzy honeyed glow! I read your post on pit firing and can understand why you go through this process.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Eugenia! Yes they do seem to have a honey glow to me too, and some of the pieces seem to have lots of depth to them.
      I hope you are doing well and have a great weekend ahead!

  2. This is amazing! I used to work as a historical presenter, and sometimes I was in charge of presenting the pottery house at Greenfield Village. It gave me a deeper appreciation in what goes into pottery. 🙂
