They look great.

Are the birds Egrets? When I lived in Temple,Tx., about 2,000 egrets chose to nest in the back yard of a house down the street. The wildlife dept did not allow the birds to be disturbed once the 1st egg was laid. The health dept condemned the back yard. The entire neighborhood stunk of ammonia by the end of roosting/nesting. The health dept then cut down all the trees in the poor guy's back yard before he could move back into his house.,.........beautiful birds........one or two at a time or on your tiles.


In Topic: Hard Brick Vs Ifb

These bricks are 15lbs each. So I guess that means 5 times the energy requirement of that of IFB.

So I guess I will use these bricks for the floor and the base of the chimney.

Thanks Mark and John

How did the glass jar trick work for you. If you were able to layer out some silt, was it more workable?


In Topic: I Can't See/find My Cone!

I have problems seeing the cones in my small gas kiln. The flames play havoc with viewing the cones, especially in reduction. This stuff is harder than is seems it should be. I agree with Babs: hearing other's struggles validates my own.
