cozy kiln

We are covering up all our pretty (hard) brickwork with ceramic fiber and soft (a.k.a. insulating) brick. Frankly, I'm not too sad to see it go after the past few months . . . the insulating phase means we're one step closer to burning out the forms and seeing the brickwork where we really want to see it- from the inside!!

At this point, it's official: the kiln will soon be more insulated than our 160-year old farmhouse. (Hmm, this seems to be a trend . . . our craft show booth is nicer than our house, our kitchen is full of seconds . . . I guess it's clear where most of our energy goes these days!)
