Newspaper Smoke Firing

Thursday morning class has been making porcelain ‘pebbles’ to smoke fire.  A newspaper kiln was made for the smoking, made of woven newspaper.

It’s exciting to get outside and involved directly with the firing process and immediate results are always a pleasure.  If anyone has pictures of the finished fired pieces, please send them to me so that I can share the results.

Waiting for the smoking to take place, about 20 minutes.
