Do you happen to have any pictures of this soda kiln
that you would be willing to share. I want to build a
smaller kiln for soda firing and 15 to 20 cube would be
the ideal size for my situation. And also is there any
reason you did not use hard brick on the interior and
insulate with a soft layer on the outside. Also BTW
your current work on your site is outstanding. I only hope
you will find time in the future to come to ACERS in
Columbus Ohio (sorry) Westerville....to do a weekend
workshop. We would love to have you there. PLEASE!!!!!!!
Yes Wayne I'm begging....I Have only had the chance to
see Dannon's texture workshop and that was two,, NO...three
years ago. I'm going through workshop withdrawl up here.
Thank you Vince.

Mel makes such good use of his "Clayart" page on his website, so I am going
to follow his good example and set up my own Clayart page on my website, and
I will put up some images of the soda kiln. Check my website next week and
it should be there.
