And here we stand between East and West
And here we stand between birth and death"

What is wood firing? Wood is the oldest method of firing clay. As the wood burns it generates ash that transforms into a unique glaze, giving each piece a distinctive character. Wood kilns must be kept burning continuously for days to ensure they reach a high enough temperature to melt the ash.
