Experimental open air kilns using recycle materials. Dedicated to Alberto Cavallini, il Caba.

Over the past 10 years, English and Italian potters Terry Davies, and Alberto Cavallini have been lighting up piazza’s all over Italy with their Large, and peculiar crazy kilns.
An insight into the world of experimental kiln construction and firing, showing plans, and images on how to build, and fire several experimental kilns, designed and built by Terry Davies and Alberto Cavallini, using alternative recycled materials.
From simple Heavy duty cardboard tubes, or clay soaked old bed sheets to used wine bottles, their kilns can be built for home fun, or huge public performance.
The development and research made by Cavallini and Davies, for their Chianti wine bottle kiln, a seemingly simple idea, which has now been reproduced in various countries.
