Pottery made at Blackhills, near Elgin, in the North of Scotland, fired in a 64 cubic foot wood-fired kiln. Pots in exposed parts of the kiln show the effects of fly ash landing on unglazed surfaces (known as flashing); for this reason, many of them are left unglazed or part-glazed. The glazes used on the pots are usually simple mixtures of locally dug clay, vegetable ash and feldspar.
