*Please note: I think my friend may be a crazy crack-head. Not sure I'd try this in my kiln. Still sounds cool.

He uses heavy aluminum foil. He is using the same kiln elements for 20 years and only does low fire and low-low fire in his kiln. If you go to NCECA he usually brings examples of his latest experiments. Two years ago, I believe it was charcoal bricquets used as an enhancer to some of the combustibles within the saggar. Look up his articles for a huge array of materials, resists and other techniques. His work was in the NCECA (Inter)national show in Louisville in 2007.
Very interesting work.
