I love trains!

For those of you that can't join me in Tuscany there is another option on the Wet Coast. It has been almost 5 years since I last fired my train and made the huge mistake of moving to the city. Me without a wood kiln is like a duck without water. I am excited to be going to the Shadboldt Center in Burnaby, BC to fire a train kiln built by train master Ted Neal. This kiln is no doubt a thing of beauty. There will be a firing, a throwing workshop, critique
and a lecture.  The bourry box is a fantastic kiln but the train gave me some pots from the throat arch that looked like they had been fired for a week. The surfaces were exceptional!!!
We will have two days rest while the kiln is cooling so I hope I can go visit Grass on the Island.
