Nanban firing, some videos.

The video below is of me in my gangster glasses stoking the front area of my snake kiln.

The chimney on this kiln is about 30 cm. by 40 cm. It draws very slowly and the flames are interesting to watch.

This video shows us building a wall of embers in the first 3 sections of the kiln. It takes about 5 hours to complete the job.

This video is similar to the one above but taken from the other side.

This is of the chimney at night.

This is of a small stoke of the first level during a slightly earlier part of the firing.
