The kiln is basically finished, the adobe might need a little touching up when it dries and there is a little brick cutting to do. At the moment we are still gathering wood for the next 2 firings and making pots. All participants that helped out during the kiln build will have the chance to have work in the first firing. At this stage we're aiming for a September firing.
The kiln design is a stepped tunnel anagama, with a total volume of around 110 cuft and a stacking space of around 40 cuft. There will be one side stoke on each side and the top step will have soda ports incorporated. The kiln will be built on a concrete pad and under a shed roof so construction can go ahead regardless of the weather.
