  • Brand new kiln - first firing
    These figures had been waiting several months until the Shampoo DUB-10 kiln arrived - imported from Japan by BotPots in Auckland, installed by the electrician. Too big to get through the door of my studio I had to build in the rear of my carport as a shelter for the kiln, up went the shelves and the firing began. So exciting to have a larger kiln for extending the size of my figures.

  • Earthling firing
    Fired in a gas kiln, what a difference in the colour of the fired clay! The vibrant terracotta figure was closest to the gas flame the purple/brown one furthest away. The clay is Feeney's red raku and they were fired to 1200degC. Thank you Kim Morgan for allowing me to use your kiln.
