Pit Fired Wares

  These are soft, earthy, handmade and fired in the same way in both Africa and Asia. 

Pots are dried, then placed into a shallow pit, with fine, volatile material – grass, straw, leaves and twigs, which is added carefully as needed, and managed closely throughout the process.  Pots are fired for about an hour, and then allowed to cool before being pulled from the ashes with a stick.
