Getting ready to open the soda kiln for a new load of Pots! Exciting!
What is Soda Fire?
The stoneware and porcelain pottery is fired at a high temperature of 2340 degrees farenheit, or in potter jargon, cone 10! The beautiful, warm, orange or gray surface comes from a combination of clay and baking soda. Different clays “flash” different colors when they come in contact with the vapors of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). The result is a distinct, subtle, surface coating!
