Terra Sigillata with Reduction Glaze (2022)
For reduction firing, I first made pots with local clay and fired them. I applied the red Terra Sigillata on some parts of my pots and fired them. For the second round, I applied my iron oxide glaze on those parts which were not covered with Terra Sigillata. After reaching 900oC during the firing, I reduced the gas to decrease the temperature, and at the same time I covered the chimney and made smoke inside the kiln. The smoke created different effects on the Terra Sigillata and the glaze as well.
