Soda fired bud vase 03
Small flattened bud vase with horizontal lines and impressed marks. Zirconium slip glaze.
Vapour fired to 1300 C in a gas kiln. This small pot has a beautifully varied surface on all sides ranging from brilliant orange to red flame flashing, with black speckle where carbon from the flame has been trapped under the glaze.
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.
