The upcoming destruction

June 16, 2008 at 1:56 pm (Uncategorized)

We’re going to destroy the Gloworm. πŸ™‚ The glowworm is (a) misspelled because someone wanted to give it a funky spelling, but then gave it a name that doesn’t seem to need special instructions on how to spell, and (b) a really cool kiln invented by Tom Lad. Here’s a picture:

Its a fiber wood kiln that fires super fast. πŸ˜€

Well, at this stage the kiln has gone through 12 firings, and the smoke-stack has done even more. Tom wants to completely rebuild it. So we’re sending it out with a bang.

You see, because it fires so fast, the wood ash doesn’t have enough time to do its normal thing and lay down ash in the form of glass all over the pots. So normally we insert ash using Tom’s Big Ash Gun, or T-BAG, if you will. This time, instead of using the T-BAG to insert ash, we’re going to use it to insert a mixed glaze in its powdered form. πŸ™‚

This is going to be very fun, but very unpredictable. πŸ˜€
