The kiln at the pottery is based on a traditional Japanese catenary arch climbing kiln otherwise known as noborigami. The wood fired kiln is the engine that drives Dog Bar Pottery. The wood and the salt combined with the fire leaves the pottery with the distinctive characteristics, warm variegated colors, rich textures and stunning highlights.
