My woodfired work is rustic. It is raw clay without glaze; the fire decoration is never smooth; it is dimensional. When cleaning the pots after firing, I ensure no sharp particles are left on the surface so it feels friendly to hands. Otherwise, I try to leave nature feeling to it.
As most of the work is sprayed by high iron engobe (clay), there can be tiny visible cracks on the surface. I examine each piece closely to ensure those are cracked surface engobe, not regular clay cracks.
Water and kitchen brushes are the best way to clean the work after it is used.
