We just wrapped up 5 days of making bricks with the kids at Madison Middle School and Brush Creek Elementary as a part of the school program for the Old Marshall Jail Brick Project. It warms my heart to see kids get so excited about mud and public art. Thinking about these kids coming to find their bricks in the monument that we build makes all the hard work worth it.

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.

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.

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