The Pit Goddess Was Kind!

The Memorial Day weekend pit firing at my sister’s house in Maine went very well, despite on and off rain showers which postponed the lighting once the pit was loaded.  Similar to baseball, the tarp came out when the rain started, and it came off when the sun came out!  Thanks to copious amounts of seaweed, and a little help from copper carbonate and red iron oxide,  the resulting palette of pit fired pottery colors was excellent.  Ongoing pit fire practice is producing better and better results.   Here’s a few photo highlights of the day and evening..
