This years postcard, credit to Saybra. The only thing I did was make the pots and get in the way of the photos. Well, I made the cabinets too, just ignore that crooked door.
Here is the almost completed salt kiln. We'll be using a piece of culvert pipe for the stack because we are out of hardbrick. My next few firings will be in this kiln so that I can tweak it and experiment with drip-feed oil.
The brick-up door. We know how to fit brick. We'll coat it with...I dunno, something.
This is a small raku kiln that will double as a small cone 10 test kiln. It will have a sprung arch and a swinging door with a stacking space of approx. 12x12x18h. This is a fun little project that can easily be built in a day. Want a small gas kiln to play with but little money? You could build this guy for $5-600 and you could more than likely run it off your standard household sized gas line.
Finally, just to prove that I've been making some pots here and there.
This is the last teaching week of the semester. I'll be spending a portion of may doing some home renovations, we'll be replacing our windows and we're knocking out a wall, etc. I'm looking to do a first firing of the salt kiln this week, post 300 is the next one up so I'll have to come up with something good for that.
