With three days of winter under our belt it looked like the first pit firing of the season was a go. And then yesterday summer returned… but the weed/fire control was undertaken successfully on a cool calm morning. In August we were living in a jungle of green thanks to a wild monsoon season: which means we are now living in a jungle of dried weeds and grasses. Surely winter will return. I am planning the first pit firing for November 28th.
The Elephant Spirit pots will be the first offerings into the marriage of earth and fire under the full moon.
