Brick, block, clay and other things...

Too many things on my mind: kiln building, collaborative pots, special orders, tool sheds, new workshops, children in college.... So, my youngest son, Levi, and I spent a couple of hours digging and collecting and transporting some clay from the back of my property. I have successfully used this clay by itself (no additions) and also added some of my cone 6 commercial clay to it. Now, I'm thinking of adding some sand or fine grog or something to it and seeing how it fires in my new wood-fired kiln - something else to think about while I ponder my stacks of refractory block and brick which wait in the shadows of my pine trees for me to pick them up and stack them to form the kiln.
