Thanks Dave. I hope to get over to Japan in a year or two...have an invitation to fire with John Dix in Sasayama, Hyogo Prefecture.

If you make it to Japan you are welcome to come by. I live an hour or so from Sasayama.

Some of my new tea bowls from the Gustin anagama firing in November. We introduced charcoal at the end of the firing, and hit close to c/14. For more images of mine (tokkuri, guinomi, yunomi, etc.) from the unloading, check out my blog at http://www.lmkoonceceramics.blogspot.com

It was an incredible firing. We put in 16 bags of natural hardwood charcoal at the end. Incredible heat...c/12 was a molten mass.

wow, that firing was great! Did any pieces break? Seems with cone 14 you might suffer some casualties :wink:

Everything survived, although there was a set of wads with nothing but a puddle surrounding them...someone got into the wrong clay!

Great video. I guess I should up my safety equipment level.
