A woodfired painted piece is usually accomplished by two steps as follows:
(I) A piece is made of unglazed or glazed clay then fired for a few days and nights straight under over 1300℃ using a lot of wood in the kiln before being painted as a normal piece is done.
(II) An artist will select a woodfired piece with a one-of-kind pattern or color resulted from firing which may come to him/her in a flash of inspiration. Then they will develop a scene, portrait or object on the piece depending on its appearance before a second firing to protect the painting from fading.
