Kiln design combines tradition and new technology

The Cambodian style wood burning kiln produces unique ash glazes and aesthetic effects distinctly different from other Asian traditions. Yary’s kiln is a cross draft kiln, with a sprung arch ware chamber modeled after kilns used in Cambodia during French colonial rule. Proeung Kang, head of ceramics department at the Secondary School of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, drew up this plan.

This little foam model shows a large burry box fire box on the left and a tall chimney on the right, two adaptations that are important for "smoke less" operation.  Japanese kiln master Masakazu Kusakabe, who pioneered smokeless design and constructed a kiln for Harvard University,  consulted with Yary on the design.
