Judith Duff - Tumblestacking Techniques

"Tumblestacking – stacking pots on top of one another in a kiln, separated only by wadding – is a popular way to load pots in atmospheric firings because it can influence the path of the flame and the marks it leaves on the pots.

This is the method Judith Duff uses in her train kiln to beautiful effect. Today, in an excerpt from the newly expanded Wood Kiln Firing Techniques & Tips: Plans and Instructions for Making a Wood-fired Kiln and Firing with Wood, Judith shares her firing method and the plans for her train kiln." – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.

To visit with Judith Duff and see her wood-fired pottery mark your calendar for the 4th Annual "Cousins in Clay" Seagrove, NC on May 26 and 27, 2012 at Bulldog Pottery. 

Bulldog Pottery is located 5 miles south of Seagrove on Hwy 220, Look for the bluewater tower.
