Porthmeor Beach

Sunday 14th. Monday 15th. Ceramic Pit Firing
Mary Kaun English demonstrates this alternative method of firing ceramics. The ceramic pieces will be layered with organic materials and wood in the sand pit. The fire will be lit at 6pm and burn through the night, the fire and smoke paint the ceramics. Monday at 10am the pit will be excavated. After burning throughout the night the pit-fire will be opened, revealing the ceramics which have been painted with vapour marks, from the coloured fumes of the fire. The work will be available to purchase straight from the pit. FREE www.marykaunenglish.com
