The Eeles family use a three chambered dragon kiln of the oriental dragon type. It takes about 4,000 pots to filthe kiln and is fired using wood, capturing brilliant surfaces on the vessels. The Eeles family are based in Mosterton, Dorset where their pottery centre is in a 17th Century coaching inn. They are Master Potters using a range of stoneware and porcelain, with glazes and raku fired techniques bringing a magical quality to the pots. This exhibition will expose the results from the dragon kiln, alongside some individual raku pieces.
