With any ceramic piece the firing is always the most risky part of the making process but this is particularly the case with prehistoric, open fired pots.  This weekend has seen me firing a Neolithic bowl, beakers, food vessels, canopic jars and a 17th Century slipware wedding plate although this last item I have to confess is in the electric kiln.  It's needed for a wedding in a week's time and there's no margin for error

  1. I still love my Neolithic pot, Graham. (copy of P52 from Hurst Fen, Mildenhall, Suffolk). It's superb, and huge fun to explain to house visitors. Even more difficult if I were to cook one of them in it :-) Best Regards, Spencer
