My pots are hand built and fired with wood in the tunnel kiln I built in Hampton.
Wood produces fly ash that can enhance and interact with applied glazes or form its own glaze.The kiln is fired just 3 times a year. Preparation involves developing clay bodies and making pots and gathering, cutting and stacking enough wood for the firing. 3 days are needed to pack the kiln being mindful of the flame path and its effect with the placement of each pot. A team of potters is needed to stoke and manage the firing day and night for 3-4 days.
