One of the first firing methods, the wood firing involves heating the kiln using only wood. Ash from the burning wood makes its way throughout the kiln, landing on the work inside. Once the kiln reaches 2340 degrees Fahrenheit and is held there for at least three hours, the ash melts creating a glaze unique to the types of wood that was used. This firing process also leave flame patterns on the unglazed clay similar to soda firings.
