Gas firing is a ceramic firing technique that involves using gas as the fuel source to achieve the high temperatures required to mature clay and glazes in a kiln. This method is favored for its controlled and consistent firing environment compared to more unpredictable methods like wood firing. Gas-fired ceramics are often associated with modern pottery studios and industrial settings, where precision and efficiency are prioritized.
Gas-fired ceramics combine the technical precision of modern technology with the artistry of ceramics. The controlled firing environment allows for a variety of creative possibilities while offering a level of predictability that can be advantageous for artists seeking specific outcomes in their pottery.
