One of the goals of the Anagama Team in 2018 was to increase the level of participation in the firing and this was achieved. The previous highest number of participants was 64 potters in the 12th firing.
The kiln was loaded in an eight day marathon led by Mal Sole and Peter Rumble with the assistance of a number of willing helpers.
