      Any chance we can see progress pictures along the way?

      Pictures are being taken; too tired at night to upload. Kiln hard bricks literally weigh a ton. Did a lot of dry fitting with arch yesterday, warm up for the real event. Challenge on this one was building kiln to fit existing chimney -- although we increase flue size to match burners. Love hydraulic jacks. On to day 3.

      I can't wait to see pictures. I also assume we get to see pictures of the first unload of actual pots?

  2. Helping a fellow potter (in return for free firing) -- kiln floor and bag wall, cut posts from brick, hung new lights. Salt fire next weekend.

      Mark -- wet diamond saw, yeah. Big bricks into little bricks.

  3. Hmmmm . . . kiln log said last firing was in September 2015. How time flies.

      More like clay inaction. Have a major salt firing in April (1/3 of kiln); making wares like bat out of hell.

      One day I want to make some pots for a wood or salt firing. I really need to connect with other potter's in GA. I would love to have some wood fired pots in my house.

  4. Having trouble getting to sleep? Ordered a 1000 lbs of clay. Always an incentive to start making.

      Let's clarify- that would be 16,000 ounces. Now you are really tired.

      Or, that's about 32,000 spoon rests, or 1,000 mugs, with handles....are you tired yet?!?!

      First spring show is in April . . . plenty of time; no need to rush.

  5. Art on the Avenue in Del Ray, Alexandria, VA has been rescheduled for Sat. Oct 10 due to weather. See you then.

      I bought some extra tarps and was ready to go, but I'm sure glad they decided to postpone it.

      I was packing extra tarps too. But will be glad to miss being out in the weather, whatever we end up with.

  6. NC Clay Club blog site just posted a notice for sale of pottery studio equipment in the Hampton, VA area. Wheels, kilns, pug mill, tools, etc.

  7. Looks like the server migration gave the forum temporary amnesia for a 24 hour period, 6/30-7/1. The Administrators are aware. If you posted or added to your gallery, check to see if items are there; if not, you'll need to repost.

      I thought some of my posts has gone missing.

  8. Thanks. Sometimes the comments and commentors are just get too serious; a little levity is needed.
