Man Power

We called on our friend Nathan again for a little heavy lifting. In just a few minutes the electric kiln was moved from the garage (which is attached to the house) to the new kiln shed. Now both kilns will be in a separate building away from the house. Thanks Nathan!

Aaaahhh....New England

It's been a while since my last post. I've spent most of November and the first half of December exhibiting my work and playing dress up for art openings. It's been fun to visit with lots of friends and customers that I only see once a year or so. Now it's back to work setting up the new kiln shed. Tim is connecting the electric for the little L&L kiln...so we can move that into the shed as well. My apprentice Tanner and I cleaned and moved about 5 shelving units into the new space last week. Their emptiness is like a calling...and I can't wait to start filling the shelves with pots for our first firing. It has taken an entire year to see this kiln project materialize...and when I slide that barn door away I'm still surprised to see a giant gas kiln sitting inside.
