We got a free kiln and moved it, via a borrowed pick up truck, to our detached garage yesterday. It is a very nice kiln, and our youngest daughter and I are very excited about it. She hasn’t done any ceramics since graduating with a minor in that last year, and I haven’t done any since last December.
For the last decade, I’ve been paying for time in a pottery studio each week, and now we are moving toward having our own set up, which will be much less expensive and more convenient in the long run.
The kiln is the first big piece. Just getting the electricity out to the separated garage is costly, but once we can take that step, we can run it on our solar. We don’t yet have a pottery wheel or any other equipment, so we are definitely not in “go” condition, but we are delighted to be moving in that direction!
Feeling very grateful for this current leap forward, and trying to be patient for the next right steps in their own good time.
