Thanks a lot Russel.

I also love the first pot you mention. I will save it for a nice tree in the future ( or until someone else really want it).


The second pot is sold so I can´t take any more pictures of it, but I have two detailed picture of it from slightly above.

I have always dreamed of having a woodfired kiln, so this summer I finally built one! It is a small fastfire kiln that I can fire myself if I have to. Perfect for my needs=).

I show you some pictures of the process:

I fired it for the first time about one month ago, and it work really good. It is no problem to get the temperature up to 1300, because of the construction of the kiln. It is a rocket!

Here are some of the pots from the first firing in my Ittagama (small wooden-kiln).

I had some problems to get even temperature in upper and lower part of the chamber, so I have to do some changes for the next firing to decrease the chimney draft a little bit.

Anyway... the result was pleasing for me =)

Hope you like them.

And a couple of unglased pots. They were standing in the lower part of the kiln, so they almost didn´t get any ashes on the surface, whitch is too bad... But next time =)









=)



I did some extra carving underneath the last pot.. just for fun =)

Beautiful pots and I am very jealous of the wood fired kiln, I would love to have one but space does not permit me.

Look forward to seeing more work and I also enjoy your Blog

All the best

Thank´s Andy and Korf!

Andy, I don´t have space for it either in my small garden( and the neighbours wouldn´t be very happy about me firing it here). So I built it on my Father in laws properties... the only drawback with this is that I have to drive 110 km each time I will fire it( with all the bisquefired pots!). But I think I can live with that ... or we will see what I say about it in ten years Neutral

Here are some new pots from my latest firing( the electric kiln)

I made some big pots 38 cm wide, but also some tiny wheelthrown pots around 4 cm wide.


















Hope you like them Very Happy
