One more day at work.

I have this weird split identity going. I spent the first half of the day firing a small order of pots in Ed Henneger’s minigama and then went to work laying up stone. The pots had top get done for delivery this week so I borrowed the kiln and got it knocked out. I love working with stone and am very distracted. I am thinking about the pots that I want to make when the time comes but for now I am loving the ring of steel on stone and the slop of mortar and a trowel.

Ed’s kiln is a pile of brick that gets hot really fast. Cone ten in four hours.

This is fun. That is why I am in on the project.

    How many and what type of pots did you get in the Minigama? Can you post pictures of the finished work? Very interested to see how they turned out!
