Kiln ready to light...

The Bourry Box kiln "Skælskør Express" will be lit in an hour - at midnight.
It has a new chimney, bricked higher up and with a relatively shorter pipe. The new innovation on this firing will be a removable grid resting on the hobs which will enable us to stoke with shorter wood, of which we have a great deal!
In the kiln are tests of clays sent from Germany by Markus Böhm, who comes up to join the Marathon later in August.
Each paricipant in the marathon has pieces in the kiln, and tests of glazes and clays.
