High Fire vs. Low Fire by George, Connor and John Paul


So what is High Fire vs. Low Fire?


First, firing is the process of changing the article into actual pottery. Firing also irreversably changes the makeup of the pottery. Firing also makes the structure permanantly harder.
Low firing is the fusing of the pottery together.

THE DIFFERENCE IS TEMPERATURE!!!!

That is a kiln^- it heats up the pottery and makes it burn at different temperatures
-different temperatures=different looking pottery!
-you can add glazes to get other results as well
