Spring firing at Kusakabe-san’

On April 14 I went to Kusakabe-san’s place to fire a wood kiln together and at the end at high temperature we threw salt into the kiln and got some beautiful results.

Quite a small effective kiln and hardly any smoke.

A mixture of sawdust and salt is put on wood which is shoved as far back into the stoke hole for salt-ash glazing.
