Kiln Opening is probably the most exciting event for both
potters and pottery collectors. This tradition started when wood-burning
kilns were used exclusively. These very large kilns would accommodate
from 150 to 400 pieces of pottery and would be fired only a
few times a year. Unlike most studio potters, they depended
upon periodic kiln openings and outdoor pottery sales rather
than having showrooms or galleries open to the public. Today,
potters do not only use wood fired kilns, but gas and electricity,
which can be fired more often allowing potters to keep their
showrooms full throughout the year. So no matter how the pottery
is fired, potters use the tradition of a kiln opening to announce
having lots of new pottery available for sale. Come find
your next collection of pottery.
