The kiln is a horizontal tube, with a firebox on one end and a chimney on the other. It has curved walls and is at its tallest, just under six feet. Wood is the only fuel, stoked primarily through a small doorway in the front, but also added around the pots, through ports on both sides. Typically the firings last four days, not including a three day preheat, with a twelve person crew helping to attain about 2,350 degrees. The kiln was finished and fired for the first time in 2015. In design, it references Thai elements of shape and pays homage to Japanese designs. It is, however, designed specifically to fire Noah’s work and for the surface of his pots. Decorated by ash and flame, loading and firing methods are the biggest determinate of the finished pottery. Because of this, the kiln is an integral part of the making process.
