  1. I have been busy with firing pieces for several exhibitions since the weather broke. The obvara was pretty successful. I have been experimenting in the saggars using tiles as baffles to help hold combustibles in place. I am including two pieces of framed baffles because I find them so intriguing. the pots range from 8-12" in ht. I am using terra sig on the sagger pieces as well as on the smooth areas of the obvara pieces. I use ball clay TS so that it absorbs the obvara and the fuming in the saggars. I just added the poster for the Invitational show. Marcia

  16. I just finished my preliminary peruse of the latest Pottery Making Magazine. The article by Marcia Selsor was an excellent introduction to the Obvara process. Excellent pictures of pots with close ups of textures. A nice, but brief historical background, and a summary of the process. Thanks for your contribution Marcia, great work!

    Obvara After Pit Firing

    Tomorrow Friday I will start the long expected Obvara-after-a-pit-fire. We discussed Obvara in a thread of Marcia's already, but now I will try to get a pit (and not a raku kiln) as hot as possible to be able to do Obvara. I started the witch's brew 2 days ago and, on the first day, I got a nice fermentation, 2nd day it was just a liquid mass, today I see fermentation again (lather), but the liquid was never warm (except when I started the brew with warm water). Question: shouldn't a fermenting brew be at least luke warm? The fermentation is a chemical reaction isn't it? And that leads to warmth?! I kept to the known recipe: 10 lt luke warm water 1 kg flour 2 packets of yeast (our packets here in Europe are 10 grams per packet - and yours in the State?) 1 tbl spoon of sugar (I took whitte sugar) Any tips and tricks you can give about the pit fire getting hot enough for the Obvara firing are very welcome! Thanks. Will keep you in the loop. Will go to bed now, it's almost 9 p.m. here. See you tomorrow. Evelyne
