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…

The Stacks Lofts + Artists Tour

The old Cotton and Bag Mill is now known as The Stacks Lofts.  And man, are they cool.  If I were ever to live in a loft apartment I'd want it to be in one of these historical buildings that has been creatively repurposed.  You’ve got to come tour these buildings and what better way then when they are full of art?

I was really excited to be invited into this show so I accept the invitation but later realized that the show was the same weekend as the Decatur Holiday Marketplace and Cafe.  Oh, no! I need to clone myself! Thankfully, Janet has sweetly offered to be there for me.  So she gets to hang out in a cool loft all day.  Isn't that nice of her?  I was able to go there early and set up the pottery so she doesn't have to do that.  The thing is, I won't be able to help her pack everything up and tote it down to her car.  Maybe you can do us a favor and pick up a piece of pottery for yourself or for a gift, that way she doesn't have to carry it home.  We'd appreciate it.  I'm sure she'd be really happy to see you even if you just came in to say hello.

Thanks, here are all the details:

  1. just got back from my show, one of my secret dreams is to live in loft some day, well I guess it isn't so secrer now, but it's a secret desire i guess. I've got to get down to Atlanta soon. Gary hates big cities so I'll have to venture out on my own

  2. I hope that Janet had only empty boxes to cart back to the car!
    Portsmouth NH has an artist colony in an old button factory, it too is a very cool place. Their studio sale was this weekend as well.
