Dear Steve,
This is a practical example where Water is one of two necessary ingredients
in creating a reducing kiln atmosphere. The other condition is that the
temperature should be above 1000 deg C (1832F).
Regards,
Ivor.

Shiho Kanzaki's Anagama has a stream running underneath it, he reckons he
gets more intense "Fire Reds" as a result, also the effect of super-heated
water on the work gives him another layer of texture along with the colour. 
Leastways that's what he told me in 06.

just over a minute long - and at the very end of the clip, Svend throws some
water in the kiln - not sure why - and it is spectacular!
