I am after some advise about a pottery class where pinch pots are made, then dried for a day or two and then pit fired in a reproduction earth lodge.
My questions are:
Do you think the clay will dry enough in two days to survive a pit fire with beginner made pots?
Are there any safety concerns with fumes from the clay in the somewhat confined area?
If the pots are not completely dry, is there any risk of injury from exploding pots and people standing around the fire?
Are there any other risks or safety ideas that should be considered or other advice?
