The ‘Firing Shed’

The ‘Firing Shed’

Kilns are where the magic of pottery happens. The process of firing turns clay into ceramics and a raw work of art into a finished masterpiece. While early kilns consisted of a bonfire over a hole in the ground, technology has vastly improved to create sophisticated ceramic kilns.

Our kiln is housed in the ‘Firing Shed’ (which is located in our garden!) and an essential part of the manufacture of all our beautiful and unique handmade decorations, tableware and tiles.

How a ceramic piece is fired has a huge impact on the look of the finished result. Firing is a craft in itself, and requires an open mind and a good deal of experimentation. This is a skilled job and luckily we have Monty who has mastered the method!
