Chip Burr explains that "we fire them at Cone10 (around 2,400 degrees) in a gas-fired kiln with reduction. When you starve the gas flame of oxygen it pulls [idiosyncrasies] out of the clay." Note: The "cone" system measures the heat of a kiln, and the higher the cone, the higher the temperature and more dense the final piece will be. Stoneware, like the ceramics made by Budd and his partner Fiorenzo Berardozzi, can withstand higher temperatures.  Photo 6 of 6 in Modern Across America: Charleston, South Carolina
