Fall 2001 Firing | Building the McKinin Wood Kiln
Wood firing is a process where the kiln is fueled solely using wood to reach temperature (2400 degrees Fahrenheit). The ash produced flies through the kiln settling on the work where it forms a natural ash glaze (examples).
The first firing of the kiln pictured here, in June of 2001 was a success, and a good learning experience with this new kiln. Over 100 pieces were fired to cone 10 (2400° F) in about 21 hours.
