Well in preparation for our move to "Th
e Hammer" we have been busy dismantling the train which is thousands of hard heavy firebricks and a fellow friend and potter Phil Yordy bought our Geil gas kiln and came down to help build a wooden structure inside the chamber to keep all the bricks in place for shipping.Phil was great to work with and we did a really nice job. That kiln has been the heart of our studio and has fired like a dream for 306 glaze firings. As for the train, now the best wood kiln in the world will have to be owned by someone else.
Another friend Sylvie offered us her Skutt programmable electric to get us started in the new urban studio. To be honest we're very excited about 04 e-ware. I have always maintained that good potters can make good pots in any kiln. This is will be a test of how deep our well is.
