A Kaili Hamada update:
PIT FIRING PINCH POTS AT U.H.
After making 14 pinch pots and being allowed to keep 8 of them,
alumni Kaili is participating in her first pit firing with her instructor and clay class.
The metal drum is loaded up with combustibles,
and the pots are buried alive.
Here's Kaili's little cutie she's going to put into the abyss.
More wood is added and
the match is thrown in.
I'm guessing this is Kaili's instructor?
And look at it go!
I let mine burn down for 24 hours.
Actually it burns for about 5 minutes them smolders overnight.
It's usually cool enough to unload mid morning the next day.
I sure wish mine was as big and cool looking as this one!
