Kiln Building Begins!


The weather has been perfect for kiln building. Jeff and I were very fortunate to have fellow potter, Richard Hattaway give us a hand for two days. 


Yesterday most of the floor was completed. Isn't it so pretty?!


Today Jeff and Richard reconfigured the arch form. This kiln will be just a few inches larger than it's last incarnation. We want to be able to use more of the larger advancer shelves this time around.



By the end of the day, Jeff was able to set the arch form and lay out the bricks so that we can get a count of what we have. It looks like we might have to order a few more arch brick. They come from Georgia, hopefully they won't take long to deliver. I can't even tell you how anxious we are to have our kiln back up and running!
