Experimental Soda Kiln Building


Joy Tanner and I have been working the last several days building this Experimental Soda Kiln for the Glaze Workshop that starts Monday, January 12, 2009. We are almost done.
Got the kiln set in place, with the help of Matt Aders and Keynon. We cast it inside because it was so cold and did not want it to freeze. So I have a heater inside it tonight, with blankets and hope all is well tomorrow.
Then the fiber, top coat, and chimney and we should be a go,
