Pit firing pt.2

We started using clay, we made the shape and then let it dry out! We used spoons to get the piece as smooth as possible. Then we fired the piece and painted it with red clay. Then we wrapped the piece with different objects that will burn. Put that in a foil saggar and let it burn. 

This process is very unique and no one piece is alike. That's what makes this process special.

I liked the idea of this piece, if I would do it again I would put less stuff in the foil saggar. There fore the piece would hopefully be a little neater and less ugly.
