Kiln night!

Eric (nextdoor) is a potter and has built a wood fired down draught kiln in their backyard. On Thursday morning he fired it. We visited in the morning, before dinner and again before bed. Here is Zachary all relaxed, watching the logs burn in his PJs. He (and I) were totally fascinated by the process.


With the glow of the kiln and the flames shooting out the chimney, and an almost full moon it was really quite spectacular.


One of the wonderful things was the kiln was so hot it actually made the Texas evening air feel less than the 90F it was.
