Firebox plate




4 x 12 x 3


Plate was glazed with crackle slip, oribe glaze, copper red and ash celadon glaze, then placed deep in the firebox of a Bourry Box wood kiln, ultimately in several of the coalbeds below the hobs. Fired there for 24 hours.

Short Statement

Putting this plate into the firebox of a wood kiln, where it would be buried in hot coals for 24 hours, guaranteed unpredictable results. The fractured, nearly destroyed plate tells the story of the firing.
