Our kiln holds about 700 pots. We fire every three weeks on average so there is always fresh new work in the gallery.
Kiln openings are always exciting. It is like Christmas morning, but it happens more than once a year! There are always surprises and the best is when an experimental glaze or technique is transformed by the fire into a beautiful work of art (FireBORN i.e. birthed in fire). There is always something new.
As the temperature inside the kiln increases the color goes from red to orange to white as we climb to 2400 degrees. A firing takes 18 hours to heat up and another 18 to cool down.
The Throwing area
We have lots of wheels because we have classes as well as use the studio ourselves. Throwing pots is one of the most fun things we do.
