My first Wood-Fired Brick Raku Kiln. I got interested (more liked "Hooked") on Wood-Firing thanks to Tony Ferguson and his invitation to help fire his Anagama Kiln last
October (check out my blog archives for details). This kiln is basically Nesrin During's design that Steven Branfman describes in his book "Raku, A Practical Approach, 2nd Ed."
The main differences are that I used hard fire brick instead of insulated soft brick. And, instead of kiln shelves for the lid of the kiln I used a scrap piece of 2-inch fiber board.
