How Horse Hair is Created
When the pottery is leather hard, three coats of Terra Sigillata is applied and burnnished between each coat.  The piece is fired to between 1300 and 1800 degrees. Once the temperture is reached, the incandescent pottery is taken from the kiln using long raku thongs.  The hot pottery is placed on a non-flammable surface and the selected hairs are draped onto it.  Once the piece has cooled completely, it is wiped down to remove the residue.  Then it  can be waxed to bring out the markings.
