Kiln Shelfies

Just a small part of the loading of the Kamaka anagama showing one of the four levels of loaded pots. These pots are all placed on setters or fireclay pads except for the small pots on the floor which are right under the side stoking.  None of these ever got broken.  The lower picture is of the right hand corner of the front which is right next to the fire.  These front pots run some risks as they can be hit by a piece of wood during the firing but the ember build-up can give some outstanding colours.


  1. Now there's a shelfie you can really be proud of!

    Wishing you Good Firings.

  2. that first one is a beauty, should be in a magazine
