Tales of the goings on at Hollyford Pottery, near the tiny village of Stockleigh English in Devon, England

A bit more height needed, but it's straight! I'm not sure why I'm in this picture, Alex has built the chimney, I just cleaned bricks and mixed the 'compo'.
I'm going to take the roof off soon and replace it with a higher structure wirh bolt-in panels that can be removed during firing. This will make the kiln shed completely weatherproof, the extra height will prevent one cracking one's head when going in and out, and it will tidy up the back of the building which has always looked pretty messy, (particularly when it had the old, wonky chimney).

oh- it's lovely!
that will be so much better. for about 3 years I had to climb on my kiln shed roof, remove a panel of corrugated roofing, and manhandle a heavy steel chimney down through the hole revealed to stand over the kiln flue! so nice to have a proper insulated duct through insulated double roof. no rain, no climbing ...
I think down your way that's what you could call
" Propper Job "
Looking good, the fete sale looked great by the way.
wow that looks great! Well done : D
