Charcoal Introduced at End of Firing
Hardwood charcoal is introduced on top of the wares on the last step of Fushigigama once the stoking is complete...at about cone 12-13. Then the kiln is sealed up and the burning charcoal causes reduction cooling effects. The charcoal tends to pop and sizzle into sparks....which you see in this clip.
