The firing lasted 100 hours with five people working in shifts stoking the kiln, which reached a temperature of 1270 C. Throughout this period, when Charles was not on duty, he would supervise the type of wood to use and where to stoke the kiln from. A great way to lose oneself as well as providing the opportunity to meet like minded people.
