Our annual pit firing took place Saturday evening, July 5th at Dan Ferguson’s farm. Dan had the pit prepared and we all had fun helping setting our pots on their bed of sawdust and straw and watching Dan make the final tweaks before we covered them with another layer of straw and dried cow manure and wood.
While the fire roared we sat around and enjoyed a typical yummy guild potluck supper.
Saturday morning we went back to find our beautiful pots in the ashes. We really appreciate Dan sharing his skills and facilities with the guild.
