It's a Raku Kiln - Honest !

I now have every thing assembled to start building
my Raku Kiln.
I must admit I did feel a bit odd buying the last few items I needed this morning.
The list read as follows:

1. propane Gas bottle

2. 9v battery

3. wire cutters

4. respirator mask

5. Jig saw blade.

In this modern age this looks like a terrorist shopping list.
I felt so bad about it I decided not to buy the Gas bottle today.
if the police had stopped me in the truck,
that would have taken some explaining.
anyway all set to go.
I will post step by step reports on the building.

Good thing you aren't in Canada. You would be in jail for sure! Can't wait to see your kiln in action, looks like fun :)

I'm looking forward to following the process, take lots of pics.
Thanks for your comment on my last post. I've posted a new one showing a better technique for barrel firing; before your students lose pots following my first attempt.

Pottery is the New Yoga?

Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
