Spring Paint

New coat of paint on showroom. Stashing away keepers from the last (really last) salt firing. Contemplating massive sale to clear room for new pots.......

I needed new bricks for the floor of my gas kiln. Getting bricks in SW. Colorado can be a challenge. Then a phone call from a local potter who is " scaling" down....wow!

Crossing the River

I'm trying to eliminate most if not all of the smoke from my  wood kiln. Chuck Hindes suggested a wall built approx. 18" from the flue exit.(picture taken before I cleaned up the mortar). This creates what is called a "wasting " chamber. The new reduction kiln will be started as soon as I replace the kiln shed roof. 25 years of salt firing pretty much did it in! I also need to enclose the shed now..... the road goes on forever.....

Every time I'd get ready to start I'd get invited to an exhibition. I'd then want to fire ONE MORE time! For "fresh" pots. Not this time.
