Mrs. Nancy Flax's ceramics student, Karli Komarek recently created horse hair pottery. Karli designed her pottery and then applied horsehair to the heated pottery when removed from the kiln. The burning hair creates smoke patterns and carbon trails on the surface of the heated pottery that remain as decoration after it cools.
