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.

All handcrafted also. Plus the proceeds go to the school’s PTA which is a very good cause.

  1. Have a great time and sell lots of pots!

    1. Thanks Michèle, I always have a great time at this show. The other artists in the room are great and the crowd couldn’t be better.

  2. oh you are so lucky to be indoors, I am out of doors during the same time and it's cold out there

    1. It’s no fun for me or the shoppers when the show is outside and the weather is bad. Everyone seems to really have a great time at this show no matter what the weather is like.

  3. Oconee county, next to my county, Morgan has been known for pottery for decades. Something about their clay.

    Perhaps next fall you can come stay with me, and see what they are doing, they have a month long open house type of festival.
