Can't wait to see the walls. It's cool to see the step up of the different chambers from the ground up.

Was I the only one, expecting the photos to show, John on a throne, being fanned, while directing the kiln construction?

Well Benzine, I've yet to see an image of him working!
He must be part of "management" now ... Supervisor material for sure.

Mark,

 

It was torrential rain and high winds all day.  Not such fun working conditions.  But we must press on.  ;)

 

We would have gladly sent some your way.  :lol:

And Day 5 is now complete. BEAUTIFUL fall-like weather today.  We did some indoor technical "chalk talk" stuff indoors for the morning, and then resumed hands-on construction in the afternoon.

This is a detail shot in which you can see part of the main firebox roaster grate on the left, a hikidashi (kiln withdrawal) port in the middle, and the in-floor air supply for the second step side stoke firebox in the background

Day 7 of the NHIA anagama construction with my kiln class today. Lots of diverse things get communicated to students when I teach this kind of class. Today, the idea of SAFETY when working at elevated locations was a serious note,......... professional safety harnesses and safety ropes as the chimney reached the roof peneteration point and we had to erect staging. And we also got the arch forms test fit on the kiln base.

Awesome.

I like the drawing of the loaded kiln, on the front of the form....silly art folk...

Also, was thatbsomeone "planking" on one of the forms?
