Gas Kimishima is offering a unique workshop to learn to build a mini anagama kiln. “I have designed a mini-anagama, one of smallest but still serious and proper anagama. I will be building it for all wood-fire enthusiasts. It will be a modified version of my latest amagama Moby with mediæval features (completed 2014). I may add a few extra features, such as pyrometers and sidestoking holes, just in case of needing them for participant’s anagama. The workshop will be very much intensive in 2 weeks. But all participants will be able to learn most important skills, including building anagama without spending a big budget, potting with traditional methods and a wood-firing for 4 days with a newly built anagama. So after this workshop, everyone should be able to build their own mini-anagama by themselves and enjoy own anagama firings in the near future. The objective of my workshop is passing my knowledge on Japanese mediæval pottery to wood-fire enthusiasts through my lectures and workshop at the festival.”
Please note this workshop will involve some strenuous physical activity in an outside environment, please get in touch if you need more information.Mini Anagama Kiln Workshop 21st June-5th July 2015.
