Wood-fired kiln building
This kiln was built in a flowerbed in Devon during the summer of 2018.
It is wood-fired cross-draft kiln. It is made entirely of recycled house bricks, and insulated on the outside with earth. It was built to a budget of about £50.
It is fired for around 30 hours, and reaches cone 9 (1,280 celcius) at the front. All the ware is fired green, with simple ash/clay glazes.
Selected pieces from the most recent firing in August 2019. They are all locally-dug, "wild" stoneware clay from Dartmoor.
The glazes are natural fly-ash and salt.
Some beautiful casualties.
These pieces were presented as part of collaborative show Suture at C4RD gallery, Islington, in January 2019.
