Wood Kiln in the Woods


When driving down a county road, a large dome-shaped ceramics kiln is not the most common occurrence. The artists behind Silver Fox Pottery fired up their homemade kiln filled with ceramic goodies earlier this week and we braved the mud and monkey balls to check out the commotion. The kiln (technically named a Ramsey Anagama Kiln) was made by Ben and Melanie and fueled by chopped up trees and refuse wood (LOTS of wood) on their property. It was quite the site to see. The firing took three days (it takes two whole days for the kiln to reach temperature).
