Kiln Site (kamaba) – Ground Work

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had the wettest November in the past decades. All I could do was a bit of digging. The images above show my slow progress of ‘Anagama Project’. Even slightly wet and slippery, I love coming here and working alone.
I am off to the Czech Republic tomorrow. I am doing wood-firing with Lukas (my Czech friend).

About Gas

Hi, I am a wood-fire potter, living and working in the Japanese tradition in Tring, Hertfordshire (UK). Following mediaeval potter's wisdom, I design and build simple wood-fired kilns called 'anagama' for long period of firing and 'raku-gama' for quick (glazed tea bowl) firing. My anagama firing usually takes 9 - 10 days.
