Onto the Kiln!

Aaron Weaver and Krista Loomans visited us and helped us get a great start to the kiln! I am pretty excited with finally starting construction of the kiln. Things seem to be going smoothly, although this is my first experience building kilns with footers. A little bit of a learning curve there, but I think we got it figured out. The footing are mostly compacted gravel, with a thin layer of sand to start the bricks off of. The brick pillars you see in front are to hold the next footing in place. Well I am off to dream kiln dreams....

Wow, looks like you guys have accomplished much since leaving NC. Well done!

Went to Kristy's and Rich's 5th. anniversary party a few weeks ago. Good folks, good food, especially the pig :-) good music and good beer, all made for a good time.

Hope you guys are doing well, and looking forward to seeing the first pots coming out of the new kiln.

Blessings-Tom
