The woodfiring kilns listed contain photographs showing each kiln
and the some of the various steps during construction as well as
information you may find useful. Each woodkiln is designed after
our meeting first with the ceramic artist to assess their particular
needs. In addition, we have designed into each woodkiln a high
degree of flexibility so the kiln is capable of being fired using a
variety of styles in the chance that as firing requirements may
change over time, the owner could make use of the same kiln
without the need for alterations. Some of the woodfired kilns shown
use salt and some do not. Each has the capability built into them to
fire with wood, oil or almost any combustible fuel source. If you
should decide you would like a woodfired kiln to be designed or
constructed by us, please
email us and we will send you our rate
structure.


We have many thoughts relating to woodkiln design and woodfiring, some conventional, most not.  We
have always admired the late Patrick Sargent who has written about his philosophy of building and
designing woodfired kilns. Look him up sometime. There is valuable insight contained in articles
written about or by him. We are never satisfied with just designing or building a single type of kiln. We
always strive to make improvement's or incorporate new features into every kiln we make. Our hopes
are that artists who use our designs will not only find the kilns easy to fire, but they will also have the
necessary options available to reach out in a spirit exploration and experimention to create new and
exciting work.

The Kirkwood Anagama was featured in Ceramics Technical Vol. #18 2004. This particular woodkiln
is a modified or hybrid anagama style kiln that has many unique features associated with it.
