New Wood Kiln at Khnemu
29th Annual Fall Tour of Studios Oct 6-7
Hello Studio Friends,
Wow...I can not believe Fall Tour of Studios is less than a month away.
This year I will be showcasing the new "Wood Kiln" that we recently
built. It is a beautiful site to see! Last year I was gifted a large
gas kiln in Detroit and brought the bricks to the farm. Over the last
year I researched and planned what I wanted to build.
I have named her "Tatsu" which means female dragon in Japanese. I
can't wait for community firings, come to Fall Tour on Oct 6-7 and learn
how you can participate!
It will be exciting to see my organic forms fired in a wood kiln.
These pieces were fired in my solar powered kiln and are currently in the studio :)
