After reaching there I face with a lot of unfired clay objects that people who work before them. I decided to make a wood-fired Kiln and fire them. It was my first experience. I was alone and didn’t have time more than three days. I worked with local row materials and recycled firewood as fuel of kiln.
I was so hard for me but a real perfect experience, the kiln had a lot of practical problems and I couldn’t increase the temperature to high level. Finally, some work was broken during the firing process and none of them was perfectly fired.
