Uwe Loellmann belongs to a global network of artists who have made wood-fired ceramics the basis and centre of their work. His work fired in an Anagama-kiln is highly respected among collectors for the expressive power of his natural ash glazes and his ability to give the special character of the body perfect expression in his work. The integrity and strength in his ceramics are the result of a long sensitive work process during the past thirty years.
Twice a year Loellmann fires his pots in a Japanese Anagama-kiln of eight metres length. A firing takes between seven and ten days and requires the uninterrupted presence and attention of the master and his two helpers. 25 cubic metres of well -seasoned pine wood are needed to raise the temperature to 1300° Celsius which is then kept right to the end.
