Tinker, Irene, and I had a lot of fun making period furnaces at Atlantia's Artisans Easement at Pennsic this year!! Thank you Atlantia!
Below are a few photos of the furnace built by Tinker that I used to made beads.

You can also see Irene's furnace in the background.
Her's uses a beehive shape. The other two use more of a volcano shape.
A few pictures of Tinker making her portable furnace. This one was not used at Pennsic, but it was built to showcase the process. I made this type of furnace with Erica a few months ago using Tinker's instructions (see previous blog post). I can't find my photos of the making of the furnace, so I've included these here below for reference.
