From The Ashes Of Time

Sketching the design

 

Sketching the traditional Wedding Vase
Hand coiling a piece
Polishing with a stone
Bowls drying for the next step
Hand painting a piece
Pit firing
The beautiful finished product
Preparing the pit for firing
Firing
Firing
Managing the fire
Cooling
Tonto and Mimbres cooling
Removing the Mimbres
Removing the Mimbres
Just out of the fire
Tonto pieces ready for the next step
New pieces ready for firing
Fire God watching over the firing
Success!
