Experimenting with the Ukrainian method of washing a fired pot in milk, then bringing it to about 600°F and holding it there until the desired color is reached.

This bowl was thrown from Runyan K-4 Multi-Purpose Red Brown Body, and fired to cone 04 prior to milk treatment. Following the milk fire, it was treated with a generous coating of beeswax and olive oil (2 parts wax, 1 part oil melted together) then heated to 200°F to allow the wax to soak in. Heating it released all the little bits of terry towel fluff that got caught in the wax upon application, and they just brushed off with a light buffing.
