Artist's Description


The distinctive bottle-shaped chimneys of the bottle oven. The kilns in which the china was fired. The outer wall of the bottle oven acts as a chimney. It is known as the ‘hovel’ and gives the oven its distinctive bottle shape. Inside the hovel is the kiln proper. The china would be placed in fire-clay boxes known as ‘saggars’ to be fired in the kiln. A kiln could contain up to 2,000 saggars. This kiln was a biscuit kiln, used to give the china its first firing.
