Tomorrow our first kids class starts. We got a few actually, so it's all coming together.. this last week, since I've been back from Missoula has been a non-stop, 12 hour days getting this place ready to go. We've finished the half-walls, tomorrow morning will, hopefully, see the trim and crown molding .. i added a few stripes of paint to give some color to the room. Look at these! What a great bunch of really awesome stools that our good buddy, Scott got together for us. He showed up a few mornings back with all the wood ready to assemble. What a great guy and some super awesome stools! From the people floating around the building we keep getting a lot of compliments on them.
Emily and I sat down and brainstormed some ideas and a kind of lesson plan for the next month..and it's going to be so cool- I'm going to sit down and make bugs and castles and horses, yes horses, and pinch pots and coil pots with a bunch of kids... sounds more like fun then a job to me.
Stay tuned for the unloading of the Missoula kiln, probably a post around next Tuesday. But before that I'll introduce you to the new wood-fire resident at the Bray, Kenyon Hansen and the Train kiln he's loading this weekend. Also, I'll show you the loading from Tara Wilson's kiln. I'm glad I held back a group of pots so I can get involved.. Both of these two are loading and firing this weekend.
Wish us luck tomorrow for our first kid's class!
