First Kiln Photos

Construction of my salt/soda kiln began on November 26, 2008.
This photo shows the foundation of the kiln!

'I had become intrigued with the idea of directly using the firing process for my work; that is, I wanted the actual flames to become an integral part of the final product.'
-Gerhild Tschachler-Nagy

This is the base and floor of the kiln. In this picture are kiln engineer, Steve Lloyd and Velda Davis, a friend and fellow potter who is helping build the kiln (Mindy McCormick, who is also helping, is not pictured).
