Wow!
I´d like to achieve such a glaze once. But in "my way" :-), in my kiln, cone 10-11, on my clay...
Is this pot "justfor fun of it", or is waiting for some particular tree?

Tom,
Sorry to hijack this thread, but have you ever seen nanban ware? It's fired in a snake kiln and has much the look of low temp pit firing. It's about cone 9 in temperature. At the end of an oxidized firing the kiln is cooled to about 1900 F and choked with charcoal and wood. Layers of carbon build up and peel off leaving a rich surface very similar to pit firing, with the benefit of a highly vitrified body able to withstand freezing. You might be able to duplicate this in your kiln if you like, I know I would be interested in the results.

Yes, I´ve heard about that technique and I know, that it is possible in my kiln. I´ve noticed some marks of it on several pots. On my clay it ends up in different colour. I have to apply something on the surface to tint the colour - so I speak about glaze. And thank You! :-)
