Heron Migrates, The – How a Japanese Anagama Kiln Came to New Zealand
This publication contains recollections of Bruce and Estelle Martin’s working life together, their travels and their devotion to pottery. In Hastings, New Zealand, they built a large anagama kiln – whale-shaped with the main firebox at the ‘nose’ and several side-stoking minor fireboxes along the flanks. Little was known of these kilns in New Zealand at the time. In 2008 Bruce and Estelle were awarded honorary membership of the New Zealand Society of Potters in recognition of their distictive contribution to New Zealand ceramics.
