Anagama Stoking Video

As promised in Tuesday's blog today's video is of stoking the wood kiln at Shorter University last night.
I'll have more pictures and a more detailed article in a day or two when I'm more fully awake (I was there until midnight and it's an hour and a half drive home). To see the start of this adventure click here
I must say, it was very fun and very interesting to see what was happening inside the anagama.
In this video we see Ian and then Micha loading from the front and James stoking through the side port.  One of the really smart design aspects of this kiln is that door.  It hangs in front of the opening so it can act as a shield and can be quickly replaced after each piece of wood is added to the fire.  This conserves heat very well.

  1. I hope to get a piece of mine in a wood fired kiln one day in the future, happy Easter.

  2. You should do a wood firing. So far it's been really fun. I have no expectations about the pots.
