Boone kiln update
It's been awhile since I posted on Mark Murrey's kiln we are working on in Boone. It's been a slow process since we are building it through a Kiln Building class at ASU. Last semester we worked on it 1 day a week for 4 hours. It's almost done now. We only have the chimney, some more steel, bagwall, and door to go.
We are using 3 dampers for extra control of the temp and atmosphere. It also means they can be lower on the chimney and easier to reach.
Mark sent me a link to this amazing video. All you kiln builders out there should appreciate this guy's skill.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
