The Anagama kiln is an ancient type of ceramic kiln and has been around since medieval times. The firing can take up to several days and need a continuous supply of fuel which means that someone has to monitor the firing at all hours, day as night. The beauty of using an Anagama kiln is all the natural ash glazes that occur from the interaction between flame, ash and the minerals of the clay. This glaze will vary in both colour and texture depending on which type of clay is used and where the object is placed in the kiln. Objects closer to the fire will be affected the most while the ones at the back of the kiln might not be entirely reached by the ashes.
