The last step a potter takes to complete a piece involves giving their work to the intense heat of a kiln firing. The potters kiln can be just a means of hardening clay into a permanent form, or be used as a primary means of creating the visual impact of a pots surface. The talk includes a history of kilns, evolution of fuels, kiln designs and construction methods. Robert has built dozens of kilns over the past 40 years, including kilns that are gas fired, wood fired or used for salt glazing, as well as Raku and Pit Firing.
