Working with Colin Richards, we are building an experimental charcoal-fired kiln. The aim is to bisque and glaze fire in here, without the use of fossil fuel. The charcoal is home-made from locally and sustainably sourced wood.
The structure incorporates fire bricks and cob, with a dustbin lid, churn lid and coal scuttle flue. The assembly sits on a steel trolly with castors, so we can move it outside to fire up.
