At High Fire Hawaii we design and create exceptional examples of ceramic art.
Each piece is a unique fusion of raw materials, natural forces and artistic process.
We fire our pieces in a gas-fired updraft kiln we built onsite to meet our specific requirements. Most of our pieces are fired to Cone 10 (2350 degrees Fahrenheit) in a reduced atmosphere.
Reduction is a process that deprives the kiln of oxygen at a critical point in the firing. Oxygen molecules are stripped from the metallic oxides present in many of the glazes.
The finished pieces exhibit variations in color and depth that range from subtle to dramatic. Careful attention to the selection of glaze, clay body and process produces exceptional examples of ceramic art.
