Wood Firing

Some Results from the recent wood firing class I teach at the College of DuPage.
Not everything survives the wood kiln. Here are some pots that were stuck together.
A "kiln teardrop" also know as a Biidaro, a glossy green ball of natural ash glaze.

We used lots of wood from broken down pallets to fire the kiln with. The pallet wood was filled with nails that sometimes ended up melting to the sides of some of the pots really close to the fire.

Some detail pictures of beautiful glaze melts.
