MARY TYMBURSK1 pholo Beautiful pots emerge from ashes of cow chips By MARY TYMBURKSI Herald News Service COALDALE Using a meth- of pottery making originated by Navaho Indians in the south- west United States from to years ago, members of Oldman River Potters Guild were successful in a ses- sion of firing here recently. As done by primitive man, the pottery will now be polish- ed with a soft cloth saturated with lard. This will bring out the shine. If there are patterns in the pot- WE'VE MOVED We are now located in our new premises at 2628-2nd Ave. N. (North of Govt.

This took place here recent- ly at the home of Andrew Aim, president of the Guild. Mrs. Elsie Kitchener, in charge of the primitive firing project, said the guild has done this on previous occasions. Two primitive pit methods were practised by the guild on its recent Coaldale excursion. The one behind the mound shown was a four-foot-deep pit. Wooden sticks were placed in the pit, then the prepared pot- tery-pieces were put in barrels, then wood piled on and burned. After allowing it to burn in- tensely, the fire was smothered with grass and dirt. In the front pit, where the group is putting on the final shovels of grass and dirt, cow chips were piled, then grates, (on which the pots were put) and grating on top of the pots with more cow chips piled on top. The set-up was then light- ed afire and again allowed to burn before the fire was smoth- ered with grass and dirt.
