bringing a kiln home

A co-Gullkistan-AiR, conspirator and colleague, Susan Williams shared some fun images she took when I was setting up the kiln for its 1st firing. Some deserve to be flip-booked, anyways, here are a couple 🙂  FYI it was COLD this day and very windy. Haha- it is windy every day in Iceland 😉

funky raku/obvara kiln. I am wearing nitrile gloves bc the rigidizer is nasty stuff!
The amazing Obvara-Raku kiln! These puppies sell for around $300-500USD so, I checked giant bags (courtesy of Icelandair) and built my own way out in Laugarvatn.
What’s all the fuss? You may well wonder. This. Here I am dunking and dipping bisque fired clay (re-fired to 1650f) into my ‘Icelandic’ Obvara mixture. Mmm mmm
