Most successful

Out of the fire, this unusual bottle emerged. Soaked in salt water, then in the path of the flame, loads of salt thrown down the chimney......and most of the iron decoration gone. But my bird-man survived, can you see him?

From last year "The Backyard Kiln"

Last year was a time of new things, hot fires, and some great looking orange bricks.



I should really add some images to this place. Here is one I had published recently.

Crushing Feldspar

Just finished crushing more of these rocks. I must have about 5 kg by now. The rest I will keep as specimens. So I have the ash, and the rocks, what's the next step I wonder.
