The box at the lower left hand of the drawing (two would be made, one for each firebox), made of hard brick would reduce the amount of air going into the firebox, to increase the heat there. The step-down grates would provide air for large diameter wood, so stoking would be infrequent. Long wood can be stoked above the grates, to provide ash to cover the pots in the firebox. Pots would be bisqued in the "normal" ware chamber. If the temp gets too hot for bisque, only one side could be fired at a time.
