Ground Breaking

Reuse, recycle, reduce. We hear these ideas all the time and I tend to think they are good ones. It comes in especially great when someone gives me an old kiln.  That is exactly what happened when the electric kiln that we used for cone 6 glaze firing gave up the ghost at Callanwolde. It’s a good size kiln, much bigger than my electric kiln but I’m not interested in rewiring this one. You may remember I did that with my electric kiln when I installed the kiln sitter (you can read about that here) which I got from another free kiln.

My plan for this kiln is to make it a reduction kiln since that is the look I like best for my pots. I am even considering adding a stoke hole so I can feed some small piece of wood into the kiln for some ash and wood effects.

Before I can start converting it into a gas kiln I need to build a kiln shed. My current kiln room is fine for the electric kiln but it’s too crowded to add flame to the mix. I’m designing a simple lean-to type shed that will have a m…

Kaboodle Home

Some stores are just really cool and fun to explore.  Kaboodle Home in East Atlanta Village is one of those.  It's got an interesting mix of antique furniture, gifts items, and art.  I'm really proud to say that my art is now included in this store.

The owner, Michael, is a super nice guy who really knows what he's doing and has a great eye.  I have loved visiting this store for years, even before I moved into the neighborhood.  It's one of those places where you know you're always going to find something different.  It's a great place to find a unique gift for your friends, family, or yourself.

Being so close to my home and studio means convenience also, and not just for me but for customers as well.  Not everyone wants to come down to the studio.  My hours are by appointment only and some people just don't always know when they are likely to arrive here.  If they order something and I can leave it in the store, that gives them time to come by at their convenience.  I love being able to offer that option.

So next time you're in East Atlanta Village stop by Kaboodle Home on Flat Shoals Ave and tell Michael I sent you.
