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.

Pottery Class

You may remember that I have been invited to teach a pottery class at the Tucker Recreation Center in Tucker, GA.  I’m super excited about it. The class is already about half full but the deadline for registration is approaching so I thought I’d post the application for anyone that is interested.

I love having some varied levels of experience because then the students end up learning from each other. It makes for a great class dynamic. Also, beginning students will sometimes ask questions or come up with projects that really get me thinking. I love that.
