small kiln, of a size that a studio potter, working alone, could fill =
and fire frequently, as well as burner fabrication for the kiln. This =

available to studio potters. In addition, he will be continuing his =
work with crushed glass-cullet-low fire glazes, using available =
materials here to formulate functional attractive glazes for low fire. =
