wood kiln documentation

Chester Springs Studio


Historic Yellow Springs, PA


The Chester Springs Noborigama was built in 2014 through a workshop with Jim Dugan.


Two chamber wood kiln, salt and soda are added to the 2nd chamber.  Firings are about 24 hours long.  


I am currently the wood kiln manager and studio supervisor at the Chester Springs Studio in Historic Yellow Springs.


See the Historic Yellow Springs website to participate in a firing.
