a notes by Stefan Andersson:

This pot is a simple form with straight sides and and slightly elevated foot — giving the pot a lift of the table. The clay is a natural clay fired for three days in the cooler parts of my dragon kiln. The greyish patches are left by the intense smokey flames and the ochre colours are from melted pine ash.

About the dragon kiln: The dragon kiln has its root back at least 4000 years and through out asia many different types of it has developed (like the Anagama). They are all more or less a tube shaped kiln with a chimney in one end and a firebox in the other. They use a very primitive combustion system and for them to reach peak temperatures of 1300 degrees celsius and more great amounts of wood is needed. Though very inefficient the process renders many effect you never see in any other kiln or firing and the kilns almost get personalities prone to one effect here and one there.
One can imagine how these kilns gave the first stoneware glazes as they pulled out pots and saw that the ash from the would melted on the pots and became glaze. The next step was simply to dip the pots in ash and modern glazes had started developing.
