reduction containers primed and ready
glazes have melted, Dennis raises the kiln shell
picking up the pots with tongs
placing the hot (1,800F) pots into the reduction containers
closing the lids
and inside the 'fire' is frantically searching for oxygen
pots have cooled, pulling them out with tongs
what has happened inside?
just a hint of color, the pots will be scrubbed and steelwooled
strong copper color indicates a successful firing....
