John Thies has been building, firing and maintaining large wood kilns for more than thirty years. I set out to build a very versatile and efficient wood-firing kiln that could be used by students who had interest in a complete hands-on experience, from the preparation, loading, firing and unloading to the final clean-up phase.
The Manabigama kiln was constructed with one layer of firebrick, a 2-inch coating of mud and straw, and steel buttressing, which is an optional feature.
This post is an excerpt from Wood Kiln Firing Techniques and Tips: Inspiration and Information for Making a Wood-Fired Kiln and Firing with Wood, which is free to Ceramic Arts Daily subscribers!
I received a few emails from Australia last month and was asked to give a plan (diagram) of my Raku kiln.
Hi, I am a wood-fire potter, living and working in the Japanese tradition in Tring, Hertfordshire (UK). I would be most interested in building a raku kiln from your plans If the offer still open to all enthusiasts. Chartreuse, pink, and purple are not colors you would typically associate with a wood firing, as these colors tend to get washed out in a high-fired wood kiln. For Richard James, the process of wood firing was central to his work, but he was often disappointed by the surfaces. Following mediaeval potter's wisdom, I design and build simple wood-fired kilns called 'anagama' for long period of firing and 'raku-gama' for quick (glazed tea bowl) firing.
And if you are one of those potters, you probably can’t get enough of the wood kiln firing process. This kiln is going to carry me to a point in the future when I’m ready to build my own. You’ll find glaze recipes, wood kiln firing schedules, information on using and building wood kilns and more. Unmarked, and it is probable that they state, then the wood taken table for large workpieces.


For more than ten years he has been teaching group workshops with his 300-cubic-foot crossdraft noborigama-style kiln.
This sweet little kiln gives students the full wood firing experience, without disrupting John’s regular schedule.
I didn’t want to interfere with the successful larger firings, in which students can get a large volume of wood-fired pots without the in-depth hands-on experience. In Japanese, mana means educational or learning, bi means a thing of beauty, and gama means kiln.
I was looking for a wood kiln that I could try to fire by myself when John called and said, “Come see my new kiln. Unfortunately I have never put my kiln plans on paper as I just build kilns from available materials and simple measurement. For instance, I was asked to help Patsy Morton (aborginal potter) with information of Raku kiln building. You don’t have to own a wood kiln to wood fire your work, but it can be tricky to find a kiln firing group you’re comfortable with and that meets your needs. When potter Joseph Sand ran through his initial business loan before getting his kiln built, he came up with an inventive way to raise the funds and finish his 40-foot-long anagama. But when many of his students asked for additional space in his kiln at other times during the year, which wasn’t possible with his normal production schedule, he began to brainstorm a plan for a small, efficient wood kiln that students could fire on their own.
I have a few different designs of my Raku kilns and could send you information of my Raku kiln. However a couple used their Rocket Oven not only for pizza but bricks and a kiln shelf which I found interesting.
Today, in an excerpt from our newly revised download, Wood Kiln Firing Techniques & Tips Plans and Instructions for Making a Wood-fired Kiln and Firing with Wood, he tells us about that kiln and shares his kiln plans.


The new kiln would allow me to cut down on the extensive labor, fuel and overhead costs of my larger kiln. And it is a fantastic wood-fired kiln for teaching without the tremendous strain of a large three-chambered kiln.
And I gave her something useful she could try and I only asked her to send me a photo of her new Raku kiln. Wood Kiln Firing Techniques and Tips: Inspiration and Information for Making a Wood-Fired Kiln and Firing with Wood Available for Download!
As I have received many similar questions for building of my kilns and also would like to see what other potters do with my kiln design, I have decided to use my blog for wood-firing enthusiasts who are thinking about building their own. Today’s post is an excerpt from our new free download, Wood Kiln Firing Techniques and Tips, in which Nesrin During shows us how to combine wood firing and raku firing. So in this section, we’ll try to help satisfy your insatiable appetite for wood kiln firing by providing technical articles to get you inspired for your next wood firing.
Even if you have a good kiln designs, you may end up with a quite different kiln from your original pictures in mind. Now he finds he can retain the spontaneity of traditional wood firing, but also open opportunities for color and a more detailed surface. I have no secrecy with my kiln building and I will give my best advice if you contact me through this Anagamaina.
