Studio Update : Object+ : 04.17.09
The wood kiln has been stacked and we will begin firing in a few hours. I am afforded a moment of rest and can now begin to move into a 5 day schedule of stoking and welding in preparation for the upcoming installation. The images above are of the stacked stones in the first chamber of the kiln. Below, the largest of the stones has been wadded and transferred from the second cradle to a stretcher that will ease the transition into the kiln. This piece is going to be once fired in the second chamber to slow the heating rate that could otherwise crack the work.
