Rutile Soda fired jug
Combed striped jug with vibrant rutile (titanium) slip. Where the flame in the kiln has flashed around the piece, the soda glaze has built up thickly on one side giving subtle greys. As the flame continues its course round the pot, greys turn to yellow/orange, and then tan.
Vapour fired to 1300C in a gas kiln.
Soda, or vapour, firing is a firing process where sodium in some form - sodium carbonate or bicarbonate, is introduced into the kiln as a solution when the temperature is at 1250˚C.
The soda immediately volatises, and combines with the silica in the clay to form a lustrous glaze with often spectacular surfaces where the flame has licked around the pot, taking the soda with it.
The randomness of this process gives each pot its own unique character.
Prior to firing, the pots are dipped into different clay slips (liquid clay) to give different colours and effects.
