Front elevation, click to view play area in use. Near the site of some ancient Roman kilns, this scheme uses a replica of a Roman kiln as it's centre piece. Community artist Bill Billings was commissioned to sculpt the kiln in concrete. View from top of Kiln, click to view play area in use.

The traditional kiln took the form of a clay 'igloo' (flu to one side, hole at the top acting as a chimney). These would have been built on-site around the craftsman's clay-ware, over a slow burning fire.
Once the pots were fired the kiln had to be broken in order to retrieve the contents.
