Woodkilns don’t last forever, and this spring, the clay class is building a new one. Guided by Kevin Crowe and Dan Finnegan, the class spending about a month building the kiln and then they will spend the rest of the session firing it several times (this will also involve making pots, of course). The first step was to knock down the old one, which happened just before the session started.
Then onto construction.
This is the front of the pile of bags of vermiculite (1500 pounds) that are waiting for a later stage of construction.
