Barrel Firing Notes

I wrapped some masking tape over the steel wool to compress it to the pot. But after the fact, I realized that the tape is going to catch fire, burn up, and the steel wool is still going to be loosely wrapped around the pot.

I'm thinking about laying this pot down in the sawdust so that half of the form is buried in the sawdust and the other half exposed to the fire and coals.

Once again, we'll see what happens.
