Hold on.....
Sorce that yellow clay with the red gravel is what I have in my backyard. That red stuff is a bitch to dig through.

I have a pile of this clay in my backyard, if it works I will dig it out of the pile for you if you want it.

Hi Sorce,

What temperature is the kiln / pit fire reaching? Can you fire stoneware? How long does it takes? Really nice!
Have yet to Fire this rebuilt version.

I got away with about 16hrs on Thanksgiving....

With enough dry wood I should be able to hit cone 6... Around 2250F.

I am tryimg to get everything out by spring that needs out!
Sorry for the deeeeeeeelay!

I made a nice peephole to keep an eye on my cones.

Last time I had em too close to a whole brick peep and the cold draft broke em ...

Gonna stick whatever I have....i think 018 012 06 05 04 02 5 6 7 8. So I can get an idea. I keep aaaaalmost buying a pyrometer..but everything I read says they cause more harm....can't afford one anyway!

I love my neighbors!
Like...2 whole blocks down worth of neighbors!
