Technical Information

Technical Information

Work is all thrown on a traditional Korean type wheel and fired in the oil and wood burning oriental climbing kiln, the latter taking 20 hours to reach the required temperature throughout ( 1350 degrees centigrade in the hottest part of the kiln down to about 1280 deg.C). Constant stoking is required for much of this time.
Many different wood ashes and local minerals are used to make up glazes and these combine to make pottery which is both distinctive and unique to this area.
Firings take place about 4 times a year, but can be less frequent.
