Anagama Kiln

More information.

The Anagama kiln (cave kiln), is an approx. 200cu/ft single chamber ceramics kiln which reaches temperatures of between 1300 and 1400 centigrade. There is no wall separating the fire from the work and through the duration of the firing (usually lasting 76 hours), ash from the fire lands on the pots and melts to form a natural ash glaze. Also, due to the fluctuating atmospheres generated within the chamber as wood is introduced and burnt, unique and stunning colours and surface qualities may be generated in the clays and glazes stacked inside.
