The Pit Fire was unloaded this morning.
We all gathered round and unloaded our pieces, dumping the ash out of our cans. The pieces in the back were mostly black. Rosie’s dear fox – exploded, so I will not put in a piece that I can’t bisque first. Pieces near the chimney had hardly any colour, though Lyndal’s turtles had some lovely peach colour from the banana peel, and Jan got some lovely rust colour from the seaweed.
The mica terra sig. gave some lovely sparkle, even through the black on my rune stones. Victoria got a little colour from the oxides she added to her terra sig. as well. And Jan’s Hedgehog was black on the inside, where there were coffee grounds, and stayed shiny, but with more dark spots on the terra sig and burnished side.
All in all it is not nearly as exciting as a Raku fire, so I think that must be our next adventure in the fall…
