Still burning after all these years
The 129th firing of the Noborigama Kiln at Woolman
Friday November 30-Sunday December 2
Woolman is blessed with one of the most amazing wood fired kilns in America. It is called a Noborigama kiln or "climbing kiln" which dates back to 17th century Japan. It is a six-chambered kiln, each chamber using the residual heat of the chamber below it. Should all six chambers be loaded, it would use up to five cords of wood split to a diameter of one inch and hold as many as 3000 pieces of pottery!​
​Potters of all ages are invited to come learn about the history of the unique climbing kiln design of the oldest Noborigama kiln in the United States and to help load it for its 128th firing.
