Hats that have been created in the round
Clay covering over bowl for support, burnished at leather hard stage.
Fired within a garden incinerator packed with paper, wood shavings and salt with kindling on the top.
Synthetic fibres melt during the firing process and some residual fibres are left within the vessel. Also in places the synthetic fibre has produced a sheen where they have melted.
One of the pieces after firing. Very pleased with the initial outcome.
Of the 5 hats fired, 3 survived as good examples, I have ordered another batch of clay and will try another set.
