Hoping for good weather in April.(FYI its the middle of a blizzard currently)
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?
Hello, I am trying to find a potter/potters in Ohio who are knowledgable about pit firing. I would like to learn how to do it and would appreciate any help. I have read books, articles but would like to talk to someone face to face. Thanks,
