Repairing the kiln

Gerry dressed in CSI gear is repairing the kiln this week. He is removing the old saffil fibre and replacing it with new panels. Then he is going to give the kiln a new floor and we'll be all be ready for another 10 years.....

A good clean out!

This week we made the decision to get rid of all the old slip casting moulds we have used over the last 40 years. We have tried to rehome them but have found it hard. We had lots of block and cases which you use to make working moulds. The Art department from York St John's University took a few and we have had to hire a skip to get rid of the rest.
We also have thrown out all the old moulds we used for making emblems on the outside of pots - everything from Snake Lane Run emblems to Millennium ones. What memories.....

Here is Gerry holding one of the hippo planters made from one of the moulds.
