Major Wood Kiln Firing

Presented by Kiln Firing Studio at Gordon residence, York PA

Oct 07 - 23 2016
Major Wood Kiln Firing

Giant wood-kiln firing of ceramics with new, adjacent gas-kiln & pizza oven; volunteers accepted. Pottery workshops also available.

You’re invited to a major wood-kiln firing now taking place, which will gradually end at 2400 degrees High-Fire in approx. 10 days from now, followed by a 2-week cool-down period, before unloading the treasures. It’s been 3-1/2 yrs. since its last firing, due to its size [one of the largest on the East Coast] & the time that it takes to load it. Plus now, there’s a newly installed gas kiln adjacent, with a brick wood/gas pizza oven in between. Stop out and check out the kiln or add your pieces!

  1. This was a fascinating event. I plan to go back next week when the firing gets up to about 2400.
    Stop by if you have the time.
