Anagama construction

Construction of the anagama:  Grant and Isaac have constructed, but not yet fired, an anagama at Grant's place.
It is a long  tube with not a huge amount of variation in the cross sectional shape. This has advantages during construction because the arch formers can be used in a number of locations along the length of the chamber.

The side doorway.  The kiln is long, and this doorway is essential for easier packing.

The anagama interior stretches off into the distance. The camera position is just inside the firebox end of the kiln, and the bright patch on the left shows the postion of the side door.
