Sadly the lid of the raku kiln I use is reaching the limit of being reparable, it’s really begining to crack, unwind and break up. As much as I enjoy reparing it with bits of kiln wire and cement, it really does need replacing urgently so I have decided to try to build my own. Thanks to James Otter of Potclays for his excellent technical advice.
This is the first stage, laying out the spare kiln bricks I have accumulated and scoring a line marking the circumference of my kiln, its 23.5 inches in diameter or exactly 5 standard kiln brick widths, I’m sure thats not a coincidence.
Next step will be tidying the bricks up a bit before cementing them together with some kiln cement. I’ll try and post my progress as I go along…
Great to see so many potters at the private view for the London Potters Annual Exhibition. I can’t wait to get to the studio later this week as I’m dead inspired.
I am pleased to announce that I will be exhibiting my smoke and raku fired pods in the “Present Arts” exhibition at The Gallery at Parndon Mill.
The exhibition runs between 6th November and the 23rd December 2014
