And just like that it was gone.
It took us 9 days to build and a little more than one day to take down.
And we did it on Debbie’s birthday!
Thanks to my assistant @nicklistoceramics for the help.
Stay tuned for more announcements about where the chimney is headed to next.

All things eventually return to the Earth.
The Chimney Monument as it was installed at Woodson Branch Nature School was design to be temporary. It was built with clay and sand mortar so it could be disassembled at sone time and moved to another location.
That time has come.
After nearly a year at this site, the wind and rain have done their part. The cycles of freezing and thawing have worked their way into the mortar and the chimney has begun to crumble.
As it was designed to do.
A reminder that all of this will eventually be returned to the Earth.
The time has come for us to move forward, to move onto new and exciting prospects.
The Chimney Monument will be resurrected at a new location in the near future.
It’s all very secret and can’t be discussed on the internet. You will just have to trust me on this one.
You will know when the time is right.
I can’t thank Woodson Branch Nature School, Debbie, Lenore, the whole staff and all the kids for being the Home to the Monument for the past year. You are all incredible. I could write a whole novel about how incredible you are and it still would not do justice to your incredibleness.
THANK YOU.
