images below include joint work with Dan Murphy and John Neely at Utah State University — we use a high-resolution digital camera and ultrabright strobe flash to capture reflected-light images, with minimal contamination by orange incandescence, of pots at high temperature during a firing

the first series of images serves merely to illustrate that we can monitor the evolution of ceramic surfaces as cones drop during the height of the firing…

the next three images illustrate how the high-temperature photograph process works, and the remaining images show the development of reduction-cool (delayed reoxidation) red colors — see technoblog post
