Jewel Creek Anagama is a wood-fired kiln located on the Oregon coast, approximately twenty-five miles south of Tillamook. Since the first firing of the kiln in December 1997 there have been four to seven firings per year. The firing of the kiln generally lasts four to five days and is fueled by approximately five cords of wood that are cut from the surrounding area. The firing is a twenty-four hour around-the-clock team effort involving four to six people. Before it is unloaded, the kiln must cool for at least one week. For more information on the kiln, please see the history page.
