New Kiln Taking Shape

Here are a few pictures of my new kiln in construction. I found a bit of time to do more work on this over Christmas and the brickwork is now nearly complete. It has been a time consuming process as each brick has to be shaped individually to fit the rather complex shape. A few more days work and then the whole thing will need to be covered with a thick insulating clay mixture, the chimney completed and the wooden former burnt out. I hope to have a first firing sometime in early Spring.
