further updates... [orig. posted 2005.01.20 at 07:01 PM]
i will give a further breakdown of the process, quantity, loss ratio, etc soon. but in the meantime, here are some photos of the bricks in the molds, out of the molds [wet], out of the molds [dry] and in the kiln... unfortunately this kiln didn't fire the first night so we had to move to a larger kiln the next day which did fire. i don't have pictures of the fired bricks yet, but they look similar, just more red. ben is glazing the first batch tonight and firing them again in time to get them into the show [about 20-30] and putting another batch of about 12-15 in to be fired for the first time. these will also go in the show, but unglazed.
