In the summer of 2006 I was contracted to build a large wood kiln for the Adamah Horizon’s Clay Studio directed by Don Hunt. I designed a 25’ ana-nobori-gama which is a two chambered kiln comprised of a 12’ anagama connected to a smaller catenary arch chamber. This kiln offers individuals the flexibility to fire one or both chambers at any given time.
