Wood Ash is achieved by firing pottery in a wood burning kiln. As the kiln heats, ashes from the fire box float into the air and circulate around the chamber of the kiln. the ash eventually settles on the surface of the pot, melts and becomes a glaze all into it’s own.
The resulting glaze is very random and no two wood ash pots are identical. The pot has a warm, toasty feel and a patina like finish with slight texture.
Wood ash finishes are often complimented with a accent glaze. Pictured above, this wood ash pot is accented with red celadon glaze.
