Deep into the depths....

by MaryAnn Carroll

...of the wood-firing kiln.....
"Manabigama which means Small Teaching Kiln of Beauty"

Today's second half of the wood-firing will consist of LOTS of pictures.  I think that they speak for themselves without me having to say anything ;o)

The first picture is right after the bricks have been removed from the front.... And then we will tour a little further into the kiln, then outside, into our home and finally end up where we getting ready to list on Etsy in both Bill's shop, SplitfirePottery and mine, MaCarroll.























And that concludes our visual tour of the wood-firing process. 
Stay tuned for the winter wood-firing which will take place in a few more months.

Thanks Barbara! It's all that hard work paying off. His first few firings definitely had to be chocked up as a learning experience. He's got it down for the #15 firing :O)
