The Kamaka Anagama
We built this kiln and had our first firing in 1982. It is based on a modern Japanese design where the kiln is only partially buried in the ground and is built with brick. The average length of our firings was 9.5 days. No glaze or slip was used on the pots. All the colours are from the ash combined with the surface of the clay.
