Kiln Site

So yesterday we met up and figured out the math for the Anagama kiln. We need around 1840 bricks, 1000 of which may already be secured.


We took a trip to the kiln site and I neglected to get any photos as I was too busy picking my jaw up off the ground the whole time. One of the main features is that there is a black marble quarry on the 60+ acres. There is also electricity, a barn, a 100 yard firing range, and it is gated. Here is my sole momento, a weather polished piece of black marble.


And if that wasn’t enough, there is a large deposit of yellow clay onsite which is pretty much completely workable right out of the ground and fires to a terracotta color at cone 6. A fine looking yunomi was made to test. We will see eventually if it can be taken to cone 10.
