About

Only wood firing.

I threw mainly stoneware and porcelain on both electric and hand-wheel.
My kiln, a single-chambered tunnel shaped kiln built on a slope, consists of a firing chamber with a firebox at one end and a flue at the other. There is no physical structure separating the stoking space from the pottery space. I use mainly off-cuts from a local sawmill. A continuous supply of fuel is needed for firing, as wood thrown into the hot kiln is consumed very quickly. Stoking occurs round the clock until a variety of variables are achieved including the way the molten pots look inside the kiln, the temperatures reached and sustained, the amount of ash applied, oxidation/reduction cycles, etc.
I fire up to 1350°C. Fly ashes, carried by the draft, settles and melt on pots to give a natural ash glaze. This glaze may show great variation in color, texture, and thickness, ranging from smooth and glossy to rough and sharp. The placement of pieces within the kiln distinctly affects the pottery's appearance, as pieces closer to the firebox may receive heavy coats of ash, or even be immersed in embers, while others deeper in the kiln may only be softly touched by ash effects. The way pieces are loaded near each other affects the flame path. That's why the loading is a big part of the firing.
According the volume of my kiln, the length of the firing vary between 3 and 5 days, and the same amount of time is need to cool down.
