Happy GoundHog Day!

I mean 4th of July....

But for us this weekend was about firing the GroundHog Kiln at the NC Pottery Center, here in Seagrove. I've fired several wood kiln's that resemble this design...a long narrow tunnel shaped kiln, buried halfway into the ground with a opening in the front you crawling through to load your pots. However, This was the first wood kiln that I've had to crawl into like a gopher to load pots...

We fired this beast on Saturday, and we'll see how it turned out on Tuesday when we crawl back into its belly to reclaim our pots from the fire.
