Shana fires her work outside in a wood-fired kiln, built using old electric kilns. The kiln is fired with branches from the woods and scrap wood from local businesses. Firing with wood, the flames travel throughout the kiln, touching each pot and creating a range of beautiful earth tones and surface effects. Towards the end of the firing, soda ash is introduced into the atmosphere. The soda ash vaporizes immediately and glazes the surfaces it touches, adding to the unique effects on each piece.
