Pit firing is the oldest known method for the firing of pottery. Unfired pots are nestled together in a pit in the ground and are surrounded with combustible materials such as wood, shavings, dried manure, leaves, and sometimes metal oxides and salts to affect the surface of the pots. The filled pit is then set on fire and carefully tended until most of the inner fuel has been consumed. After cooling the patterns and colours left are by ash and salt deposits.
