Pit Fire

These photos are of the big metal pot I picked up at a Clearance Sale.  It has been used to render down fat etc. at an abattoirs.  I intend to line it with good burning wood, then build up layers inside with pots and sawdust, and lots of colour making goodies. etc. to carry out a pit fire.  It's very deep and large enough to hold quite a lot of pots.  I thought it would be better than digging a hole in the ground  and if needed can also light a fire around the outside for extra heat.Can't wait to try it out, still madly making pots and burnishing first, then a low bisque fire and then the fun can begin.
