The Kamaka Anagama

The Kamaka anagama is about 500 cub. ft. and was usually fired over a nine to ten day period.  The wood stacked in this photo is only about one third of the total we used in a firing.  Once the fire was established we would stoke with  large bundles of wood every five to seven minutes twenty-four hours a day for the full length of the firing.

  1. Looks like a neat little kiln, Bruce. Is it still a wine cellar?
