Pit Firing

​坑燒

We dig a hole in the ground and put the bisque pieces with attached salt and copper oxides. Sometimes we add straws, oyster shells, or unexpected natural materials. Then we add wood and paper as fuel to make the pieces adsorb carbon and oxides to form pleasingly detailed marks during the smoke firing process.

我們在地上挖一個坑洞,放進附上鹽和銅等氧化物的胚體。有時候還淘氣地加上稻草、蠔殼和意想不到的各種天然材料。然後我們利用薪材作為燃料,煙燻過程使坯體吸附碳素及氧化物,形成令人賞心悅目的細緻痕跡。
