Welcome to the Woodstoke website


Maureen Allison is firing her anagama kiln on Labour Weekend (25th to 27th October). The photos below give you some idea of the wood involved. Luckily her husband, Dennis, is handy with the log splitter. See the contact page if you want to call in and see her kiln in action.


Here's a classic photo of Maureen dealing with the wood pile for the next firing.
