The Upwey Potters build a kiln at the Upwey Village Hall at the turn of the century designed to use the soda technique.

This is Fil Cooke, hard at work spraying the solution of bicarbonate of soda into the kiln at almost 1300C.

This is the report about the kiln that appeared in Ceramic Review Issue 205 in January 2004
