Glaze firing

After underglaze decoration, the pot is glazed and fired to a temperature of over 1300 degrees. Porcelain is fired in a single-chamber kiln. At the Imaemon kiln, the kiln is fired eight times a year, with three people taking turns firing for 32-34 hours. Oil, pine wood, and coal, in that order, are used as fuel to bring out the rich surface texture and coloring of Arita ware.
