The firing was done on the site. The firing was first made of the pots as such. The firing would take about one day. Any lead glaze would then be prepared and added onto the fired pots in a second firing.
The kiln was a about two meters in height and about the same in depth and housed under a simple shed. As far as I could judge about four of the largest pots that were made would fit in the kiln for one firing.
Pretty much anything that burned could be used as firewood.
