We unloaded two chambers of bricks this week. I’ve barely had time to look at them until today. @anagamax and I are starting to clean them up and get them sorted. Here is a sneak peek at a couple I grabbed as we were stacking them on the pallets.
More to follow soon.

Today was the perfect storm. A cooling day after the firing with a snow day on top!!! If that’s not the universe telling you to take the day off, I don’t know what is! Emily and I certainly needed it. So far we’ve watched the first two Harry Potter movies, made chili and have barely left our house. Perfect.

Day 2. Flying solo. Cone 5 on the face in the first chamber. Bricks are nice and dried out in the back two chambers. Things are moving along nicely.
Thanks to @micahmakespots @kristeneasters @mattwegleitner @anagamax @gillandotypottery and most of all @carolinaflowers_ for all the help with the firing. Ya’ll are the jam.

Bricks.
We’ve made somewhere close to 3000 so far. We start firing them next week. The great schlep is about to begin…
