Pit Fire: Part 2

I started by wedging 4 or 5 pieces of clay to use on the wheel. It took a couple tries to center the piece but once I got it I had a lot of fun creating my piece. I tried to widen the clay and then shape it back to narrow to create the look I was going for. It ended up dipping in on one side, but I really liked it and it was unique so I kept it. I painted some of it with terasig but I wanted some red colors, so I added salt into the foil. I also glued on flowers which you can see in one of the pictures. That's about all that I did. I would definitely do it again and use different materials to see what will happen. I would like to use hair and wire the next time I do it. This technique is different from traditional firings because it depends on what objects are involved as to what your piece will turn out as. Kiln firing mostly turns out how you put it in the kiln.
