High-Fired, Wood-Fired Pottery
Wood-fired pottery is vitrified in a wood-fueled kilns, in contrast to most other contemporary pottery which is vitrified in electric or gas-fueled kilns. A continuous supply of wood is needed for firing, as wood thrown into the hot kiln is consumed very rapidly. Stoking occurs round the clock until a variety of variables are achieved including the way the molten pots look inside the kiln, the temperatures reached and sustained, and the amount of wood burned.
