Burning is over.

Artefact type: Reconstructed clay vessels in an experimental firing.

Use: The firing of pottery in a covered kiln structure.

Location: Krookila.

Period: Modern.

Dating: 1997 A.D.

Photographer: Jari Näränen.

Two days after the beginning of the burning process the kiln is ready to be opened. The kiln should not be opened too early, since a sudden flow of fresh air into the warm kiln may cause an unwanted process where the already black vessels may start to become light brown again, caused by the presence of oxygen.
