International Ceramics Festival

Friday 1st - Sunday 3rd July 2011

Steve Mills(UK)

Steve Mills built a replica of his own kiln at the 2005 festival; a small scale double-cross draft, made out of commonly avaiable house brick which withstands high temperatures.

“As I am working full-time in my own business, my pot making is of necessity a spare-time occupation, and I have neither the time nor the space to operate a large kiln on my own, particularly as I do wood-fired salt glaze. My kiln is consequently comparatively small, easy to build and fire, and gives me the results I want without my having to fire into the wee small hours. I know I am not alone in my scale of working, and so I have focused my kiln building efforts towards others in a similar situation.”
