Process

The work is either made by coils or slab built. It is either left as plain clay or raw slipped and glazed.

The kiln is made of loose laid very light, high insulation brick. It has has a maximum height of 6ft 4ins at the highest point of the arch. The floor space is 4ft 6ins square. It is fired by gas. The flame passes up through the setting and is forced down to an under floor flue. There is light reduction from 900 to top temperature, followed by half an hour of oxidisation. A light fuming of salt is applied during the reducton phase.

The work is once fired to 1315 degrees centigrade.
