I've had an exciting invitation to participate in firing a ground hog kiln. This kiln is fired using wood as fuel and creates a unique surface on the pots. My friends, Hal and Corine own the kiln and have given me this great opportunity.
Since the ground hog kiln is a traditional type of North Carolina kiln I thought I would make some traditional pots. I have never made a large jug before so I thought this would be the perfect time to try. As you can see from the photo, I ran out of clay on the third one and didn't have enough to make a proper rim so I have two jugs and a pot. Live and learn. The trick is to get these handled, dried, bisqued, and glazed before Friday.
Wish me luck.
