Kilns around the World
The first kiln I built in 1994 was such an intimate experience to fire. Knowing the kiln from the inside out during the firings allowed me to anticipate problems and account for variables. Your clay choice, how you load, and how you fire all effect the way the work looks. The design of the kiln is equally important in its relationship to the pottery. Among these pages are the kiln building projects and workshops I have lead. It's exciting to hear of great work that is being made in these kilns, a small legacy of clay.

In December of 2015, I returned to The College of Crafts, China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Last year Lars Voltz, Kelsie Rudolph, the Academy students, and I, built two kilns for the school
