The pot shop is now buzzing. I am teaching a special topics summer course called "intro to wood-firing". We are gonna fire the Hogagama and the cross-draft wood/salt kiln. It has turned out to be an interesting and diverse class. They are making some pretty exciting work! I have never fired a kiln with such primo wood, we have several bundles of kiln-dried stickers from peerless wood working in Bristol. Its all hardwood with "less than 9% moisture". So over the last few days I drug out ye olde saw buck and fired up mandy(chainsaw). Load, Saw, stack, repeat. I hope we have a good firing.
July 5th I head up to Penland School of Craft, I will be there until Aug. 16th or so. I am assisting 3 sessions in upper clay and am pumped about it! Beware the Wookies.
