I'm interested in doing pit firing in an updraft kiln made from a metal barrel. The laws in CA, especially in Sacramento can be pretty tight when it comes to what we do on our properties and I can't seem to get a clear answer about whether or not it's legal, or how to go about getting a fire permit IF they would allow this type of thing. Does anyone have experience pit firing in Northern CA?
This book has just been released and focuses on kiln firing fir Raku, Pit, and Barrel plus high fire wood kilns. The galleries are full of beautiful work by many ceramic artists. I am excited to be included along with many others. One piece of mine is an Obvara pot with sodium silicate crackle surface and the other in an installation of terra cotta paper clay books pit fired during my residency at Archie Bray. I used the train kiln and a pit. The installation is a memorial piece for 9/11. Marcia
