Welcome to my blog. I will attempt to make it much more than just a pitiful list of the relentlessly mundane minutiae of my daily existence but if you feel that I have failed try to imagine all the stuff that I haven't posted.

New vid - past firing


Here is anew video I've put up, while waiting for this kiln to cool. This was shot in 2010.


  1. What is it with blokes and prog rock!

    What a process, glad I've got a gas kiln, not so labour intensive, plus I don't think the council would approve we are in a smokeless zone.

    Looking forward to latest results.

  2. The soundtrack is The Damned - from their last album. A bit manic perhaps for a woodfiring, but it's representative of my adrenalin levels.
    The kiln smokes heavily for 1 or 2 hours but then the chimney gets so hot and the passive dampers let in so much air that it burns pretty clean from then on.

  3. Such delicately applied wads!

  4. Can't wait to get a chance to fire my own wood kiln! (it's still in the planning stages)
