PIZZA KILN

When I went to burn a pizza in my oven, I found there was a small problem, it wasn’t a kiln any more. I had made it from cob, the frost had got in and it had collapsed. So I had to resort to the kitchen oven.

Here are some pictures of the new one I built.

About timbartell

I was born in a flat in Lambeth the name of which was, Wedgewood house,China walk estate.I'd forgotten this until recently,it dawned on me the significance of the names after I had become interested in pottery/ceramics.I think of myself as a potter in the most practical sense,making pots for people to use.I have never had any formal training,I took it up when the table tennis class was full.My first flat was in the same road as a pottery centre, Elmwood pottery, the best in London, 18 sessions a week and a real community. I love my craft and bore everyone with it, so am grabbing this chance to bore more people via this blog.There may be the odd interesting item, here's hoping.
