Gas Kimishima has been working in the Japanese tradition in the UK for over a decade. His speciality is building simple but beautiful wood-fired kilns. He uses mediaeval Japanese pottery techniques and enormous amount of split wood for his work. His firing usually takes 8 to 10 days. Inspired by nature, Zen ideology, and Gorin (the Buddhist tantric elements of earth, water, fire, wind and sky), his identity is clearly recognizable. He is passionate about making large garden pots and flower vases, and enjoying flower arranging and tea ceremony. He also makes traditional tea bowls in his wood-fired Raku kiln. Along with his informative website, he has Anagama Blog with more updated information for wood-fire enthusiasts.

Deep in the countryside of West Wales we make wood fired pots for everyday use - pots for cooking, pots for the table, and pots for gardening.All are hand made, and fired to high temperature in our kiln, to produce strong handsome pots with that "toasted" look, characteristic of wood fired stoneware.
Pottery made at Blackhills, near Elgin, in the North of Scotland, fired in a 64 cubic foot wood-fired kiln. Pots in exposed parts of the kiln show the effects of fly ash landing on unglazed surfaces (known as flashing); for this reason, many of them are left unglazed or part-glazed. Although unsophisticated, these glazes can be very beautiful, sometimes producing unexpected bonuses such as the blue "chun" glazes seen on some of the pots.
I make wood-fired stoneware pottery in a two chamber climbing kiln. The core of my production is a range of kittchen/table-ware designed for people to use in their homes. My repeat-ware production underpins a range of one off pieces who's only function is to feel right. Please visit my site to find out more.
