Clay pottery project, wood fired kiln made out of a 55 gallon metal drum. I made the pottery and painted them with stains made from thinned clay slurry and ash, and other natural earth tone colours. The naturally dry pieces are placed in the drum mixed with saw dust and small and medium sized wood pieces. The wood and saw dust mix is burned from the bottom up, it takes about two days for it to burn all the way. These pieces are the result of this type of kiln firing.
