This paper is a personal interpretation of the development of stoneware wood firing technology as practised by artist-potters in Australia, particularly in New South Wales, from the early nineteen fifties through to the early nineteen nineties. It deals with the history, the major personalities and their influences, the technologies used and their origins, the kiln designs evolved and the firing techniques developed.
