Iron Smelting Experiment - 2004

« large pic »
The scale here is 1 cm. Note the colour shift and break pattern to the smelter wall. You can see the dried cob to the outside. Towards the interior the colour shifts to a white of sintered clay. The dark gray and bubbled layer represents glassy slag on the inner surface.
