Burnt work

terracotta musical jugs designed to be filled with water to tune themOur kilns are over 20 years old and like second hand cars, need more and more TLC as the years go by.

Our kiln ‘doctor’, Mr Glyn Tilley, drives up from Abergavenny especialy to service our kilns. It’s always a pleasure to see Glyn, but his visits are becoming increasingly regular.

At the moment kiln no 2 seems to be overfiring at the bottom and burning our ceramics to a cinder. Just look at the colour difference of these two jug shapes. The one on the left was at the top of the firing and the darker one at the bottom of the pack. Grrrrr!
