Workshop and kilns

In the community of Australian woodfire potters no-one generates more respect than Peter Rushforth. He first fired a kiln with wood more than 50 years ago at a time when woodfiring in Australia was in its infancy. After a long potting and teaching career he returned to wood kilns after shifting to Shipley, in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney (see map). The first of his wood kilns there was built in 1981. These pages were first published in Sept 2003.   Peter Rushforth died July 2015 aged 94.
