I am always doing things I cant do, that are how I get to do them.

An Anagama is a Japanese type kiln, which is fueled with firewood. Stoking continuous until Cone 10 to 13 is reached, which depending on the size of the kiln and takes from 48 hours to 12 days or more. The kiln takes the same amount of time to cool down. Burning wood also produces fly ash. Wood ash settles on the pieces during the firing and forms a natural ash glaze. The located in the kiln determines if the pot could receive a heavy ash glaze with texture or just flame marks. Different types of wood produce different colors of ash glaze. The atmosphere changes from oxidation to reduction adding additional effects.
This is my favorite firing in which I get to participate few times a year or less.
