Horsehair pottery

Horse hair pottery has come to a lot of potters’ attention over the recent past. This technique does indeed use hairs from horses (some other animal hair has also been used, with mixed results). Basically, the idea is to burn the hairs on the pot’s surface to create lines. As hair is laid upon glowing hot pots straight from the kiln, they sear onto the pot’s surface and will leave very localized carbon markings.
