The Kamaka anagama is about 500 cubic feet, holding up to 1000 pots, and is fired once a year for 9 to 10 days. Pine wood is used for fuel and the kiln is fired by two teams of two people, working twelve hour shifts.

All effects are from the firing process on the raw pots. No glazes are used and the history of the firing is evident on each pot. (Click on the thumbnails for more information.)
