My Kiln, a.k.a. the "Silver Elephant"

I will call her "Ellie" for short. Ready to christen her with a first firing and a nice bottle of wine, which I hope to share on October 29th, when we have the Fall Open Studio event. This is a 40 year old dream come true, and the dress rehersal is over, time to get this show fired up!

 The KeystoneThe Wedgie I love this man who wears the apron in the house. When I was a young woman graduating from the University of Illinois, I knew I could not begin to build this kiln "without a man in my life". I am not talking about the heavy lifting, I am talking about the gas lines, the construction,  the math, the logistics, the supplies, the fittings, the framing, the burners, and while I am confident about firing it by myself, no way could I have orchestrated this without the man in the apron, Howard David Peller. Thanks honey!
