Mike Weber Anagama workshop

Herbster Wood Fired Anagama Workshop

Firing the Anagama kiln

Firing begins once the loading is complete. A small bonfire is the beginning of what will eventually become a forty-foot flame with temperatures exceeding 2400 degrees Fahrenheit. Stoking of the fire takes place 24 hours a day for three days, and consists of three eight-hour shifts. The kiln is stoked with red pine.
