Old Tavern Kiln Collective

Old Tavern Kiln Collective is comprised of six Richmond area ceramic artists: Jeff Vick, Joanna Gragnani, John Bryant, Lee Hazelgrove, Paul Klassett and Philip Mills.  In the summer of 2013 we came together as a group and built a two chamber cross draft wood firing kiln.  Our kiln is situated on a beautiful 400 acre farm in rural Quinton, VA, which provides quite a magical and dramatic backdrop during the firings!  We typically fire our kiln 3-4 times a year and we invite those interested to join us durung the firings (you can read more about this in the "firing" tab).  An average firing takes about 3 days and uses around 4 cords of wood.
