This is one of the most wild processes I have ever tried in the creation of ceramic pots. The pot is taken out of the kiln at 1750 and sprayed with rubbing alcohol to induce reduction. Then placed under a Pyrex bowl and reduced further. At the right moment the bowl is flipped off the pot and water is poured on the pot to freeze the color. This technique was developed by Don Ellis.Don is a world class potter and I am very fortunate to have been able to take a work shop with him.
