kiln hearth

I got to participate in an all night wood-firing with the clay students and teacher at my school. As the night gets darker, the hearth gets brighter and hotter. Students stoked the fire through the night and on into morning, to get the kiln up to a temperature of 2400 degrees F. Each year is different; each year the experience is wonderful.
