well, the kiln pad is poured...yea!...and I should be able to start working on rebuilding the kiln soon. it was a little bit scary for a while--that's alot of concrete coming at once. luckily I had some great help...thanks chad and david--and it looks really good.
when doing the underslab prep, I realized that I had way too much gravel inside the form, so I put in a walkway from The parking pad to the steps--i'm going to finish it off with some large rocks on the border. totally free walkway...gotta love it!

I took a glaze workshop with John Britt a couple of weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. If you are interested in his workshops, check out his website, he has a schedule of his workshops there.
In other news, I i spent the day building the concrete forms for the kiln pad that will hopefully be pouring over the weekend...yea! it's long overdue--it's been hard to go without a kiln for this long, it will be great to get rebuilding it checked off the list. pics to come soon.................anyone for a concrete party?.....................
