Third kiln design and brick firing.

Its my biggest kiln yet. Double the capacity of my last one.

Hottest yet! It takes alot more firewood now too.

Look at the glow. I need to get some sort of pyrometer or cones
to know better what temp is being reached.

Notice the white bricks. They along with the pottery are from streambed clay instead of red field clay. I next will be working on fluxing agents like lime and used glass to improve hardness and vitrification of the bricks throughout.
