Welcome to my blog. I will attempt to make it much more than just a pitiful list of the relentlessly mundane minutiae of my daily existence but if you feel that I have failed try to imagine all the stuff that I haven't posted.

Laying down base
Well well - look at this first image. Blue sky! In Britain! I'd quite forgotten how beautiful it is.
I've laid down a 50mm concrete paver base on a bed of sand and set out the floor plan of this kiln.
It's slightly raised from front to back to allow for a grate in the firebox and a small rise to the chamber and then the chimney. As you can see it's quite a small kiln. Large enough to make it worthwhile firing but small enough to allow me to do frequent differing firings.
The corrugated iron arrived today so the next think is to extend the kiln shed.
