Kigbeare Kiln Crowdfunder : September 2017

Svend Bayer working on the kiln entrance

The next firing of the Svend Bayer climbing kiln, built through the generocity of the Arts Council and lovely crowdfunders, takes place shortly.  The pots have been made, the glazes mixed and applied, and the painstaking process of loading the kiln is underway.  Two crowdfunders, who paid for the priviledge of helping fire the kiln - working punishing shifts, stoking a very hot kiln and generally getting hot and bothered - will arrive shortly to do their bit along with the rest of the team Svend is currently working with.
