Kiln-Firing with Toshiaki Shibuta

We came across a great video made by our artist, Toshiaki Shibuta.  You can see just how long it takes to bake items in the kiln.  The firing takes place day and night, and that takes several people to work in turns to complete the process.  This was taped during seven days of work.  You can also learn more about Japanese kilns on this Wikipedia page.
