Slow and Steady

Always a satisfying moment when you drop an arch form. Never lost an arch yet, but there is always a first time. Back wall is five courses from done and the front-firebox side is close to that since this picture. Still some to do, but got a lot done already and they say this weekend will be near 50* which will be a nice change. Hope to have the first firing in April.
Appreciate the people who have dropped by the new shop in town. Hoping for a good year.

  1. i lost an arch a few years ago. i was pulling the form out by myself and had to wiggle it a little bit and down went the arch. the part that really sucked was that it fell into a stack of kiln shelves and several of them broke.
