  1. Hi all. Total newb to pottery and I have some questions on a project I am undertaking. I am an occasional pipesmoker, and I like to make my own pipes. I've carved them from wood and soapstone, and I have decided to make a clay pipe(s). I've made a plaster slipcast mold, but I neither have nor have ready access to a kiln at the moment. I've been looking into pit firing as a possible solution. I do know that pit firing doesn't get quite as high a temp as even a small hobby kiln, but clay pipes( at least those intended for tobbaco) are only bisque fired, to retain their porocity. Would pit firing be sufficient to fire my pipe to bisque? Are there any issues with pit firing slipcast, or small, relatively delicate forms?

  4. From the album: newer work

    This is a one-piece water pipe, thrown in sections and joined. The visual inspiration was a kind of melding of a number of ideas.
  5. From the album: newer work

    This is an effigy pipe, in the form of a lizard with wheels and gears. The glaze is a silky white with a pooling of warmer colors along edges.
