Salt Firing is a process which was developed in the 14th Century Europe.
Cathi Jefferson wrote "Salt-Firing Each piece of my pottery is fired to high - temperature stoneware (cone 10 / 2400 degrees F or 1300 degrees Celcius in a 40 cubic foot gas car kiln.
The crispness in colors and varying surface textures are produced by the salt-firing. Late in the gas firing, I roll up "burritos" made of salt and baking soda and wood shavings and put them into the kiln by dropping them into the kiln on a piece of angle iron. Once in the kiln, they volatilize sending salt vapor moving with the gas flame among the pieces of pottery.
Each piece is different and sparkles with a vitality that only the salt-firing process can produce.
