Rob Withrow of Brasstown, NC creates face jugs & "fun"tional pottery with his wood fired kiln.

Wood Kiln

At Smoke in the Mountains Pottery we have a community-built wood kiln that can hold over 700 vessels and my big jugs. The kiln needs to be stoked with wood every 3-5 minutes for seventy hours straight, so we must take shifts to make sure the job gets done. We’ve fired the wood kiln 7 times now and every time it is a big community event. Keep an eye out for my wood fired pottery on Etsy – coming soon after Wood Fire 8! When I am not wood firing, my vessels are high-fired in a gas kiln with a food-safe glaze in a reduction atmosphere up to 2350 degrees.
