Making Progress!

Adrienne Gradaur and Zach Quin have been making good use of the sunny days in Saskatchewan.  Look how far they have come in their new kiln build – the flue arch is up and curing.  You have to give these two young potters a round of applause.  The bricks they are using are heavy and much larger than those in the plans that were used for the School of Art’s new Bourry Box kiln.  But as anyone reading this knows, if you are a potter with a studio at home and a young family, you take what you can get your hands on and make it work!  They are doing just that.  Can’t wait to see where the pair will be in another couple of weeks.

If you are around Lloydminster and want to lend a hand, even for a few hours and you know what you are doing, track them down.  You can also contact them through Smiling Cow Pottery.  Well done you two.  So proud of you.
