Find out more about the last time a bottle oven was fired - Tuesdays to Saturdays during August.

This display was curated by those who took part in the last bottle oven firing in 1978 and explains the process of preparing and coal firing an oven to produce ceramics.

It shows how the staff and volunteers at Gladstone Pottery Museum took on the challenge of firing an oven one last time so the process could be recorded for posterity.

Included with museum admission.
