August 18 - Saturday moving a kiln

Saturday a bunch of us got together to help move a kiln from Central Piedmont Community College to Clayworks.  CPCC isn't going to use it any longer since the ceramics department moved into a new space further from the kiln.  They also need to get it and the large propane tank off the property before the FBI and Secret Service take over the campus as headquarters during the Democratic National Convention.

It was a long process, but had a great crew and we got it all moved by late in the afternoon.  Now we are making plans to build our own salt kiln using the bricks from that kiln.  I'll keep you posted.

The kiln before we started dismantling it.

The back wall has been glazed from the firings.

The kiln including the shed roof and the chimney.

The trailer we used.

In process.

Sill going.

Most of the happy crew --some had to leave early.
