Also debuting at the 2013 Boston Handmade Marketplace is Hathaway Ceramics. Bringing yet another different ceramic technique to the event, Hathaway creates most of her work using a 'soda kiln'. Through the soda firing process a soda ash and water mixture is sprayed into the kiln towards the end of the firing. As explained by Ingrid Hathaway, "Each adjustment to the fuel or air supply during the firing is made through a conscious decision based on previous firing experience and a willingness to experiment with the outcome. The results are unique pieces that display an individual personality and cannot be replicated exactly from firing to firing."
