Firing together is the Best: A Back History
When we built this sweet kiln in 2016 I had no idea what joy and connection she would bring. We have fired her 23 times now and every time we have worked hard, shared meals, laughed, swapped stories and celebrated beautiful pots.
Kazie, as we fondly call our kiln holds about 150 pots. Thats close to 3500 pots fired so far in her short life. Currently, she is in the process of a rebuild because we decided to introduce soda at firing #16. We sure loved the results too. But we knew that the kiln was not built with materials that were able to withstand the corrosiveness of soda. So, we got 7 firings and it was time to rebuild and modify her for soda. We also knew we needed to build an awning for her so we were not required to wait for good weather to fire her.
Now she will be ready to fire in the spring. We are planning 2 test firings in in April.
Then our first weeklong firing workshop in May. This workshop will provide the funds for the kilns gravel pad and awnings. We are really excited to fire together with our greater community. That can be you!
