Hi Folks,

I thought that some of you might be interested in this article on Tepee firings that
Australian potters Judy Armstrong and Jan Barnes have kindly allowed me to put online.
In this type of firing, a teepee is built with palings and then covered in slip-soaked paper.
But because it's a different kind of firing than the traditional pit firing, it's spellt 'TePee':
