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

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.
