I'm lucky enough to get to share some soda firings this summer... the first kiln only had some of my ugly "experiments" because I wanted to learn the process and see results before trying anything bigger or more complex, but so far, I think the soda firing has been fun!

These look cool.

What exactly is soda firing?

Cool pieces, my favorite is the third vase, whose swirls suggest gusts of wind or ocean waves to me.  The unusual shape/texture of the second sample is intriguing as well.

Smmarrt - Its a firing process in which we have to spray soda ash (sodium carbonate or bicarbonate solution) into a kiln when it reaches its high temperature (around 2200 or 2300 Fahrenheit). It creates a glaze on its own or interacts with glass glazes on the pottery.

Kwality570 - Thanks! I kind of like the lumpy one too. I didnt like it so much before the soda fire, haha!

They turned out beautifully. We have a few pieces of what must be soda fired pottery based on how yours look. I think the orange hue and sometimes crackle effect are some of my favourite glazes.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
