“The building of the Kigbeare kiln” – Illustrated Talk
The kiln has now been built and the test firing was carried out at the end of March. All the kiln builders made pots to go in the kiln, knowing that this was a tremendous risk, because the performance of the kiln cannot be known until after the firing – finding out how the flames circulated around the kiln, where the best ash deposits were, if there were any cold spots, etc. The kiln was also still in the drying out phase, and how this would affect the pots was an unknown quantity. Svend will bring us right up to date with the news of the Crowdfunding firing, which took place in June.
