Beautiful, John! Looks very nice and tidy. Looks pretty tall inside. Big enough to stand/stoop in? Sure makes loading nice.

What's that hanging above? Never seen one!

Thanks. The students did a fantastic job in the 14 straight days it took to build it.

The last rear step stacking height is just over 48" high. At the front at the highest point (after the tapering front from the door rises upward) I can JUST stand upright.....I'm 5' 9" tall.

The object over the kiln is a Shimenawa with shide......... a Shinto purification/blessing braided rice straw rope, with paper cutouts hanging below. There is also a Shinto Kamidana in the eaves of the kiln shelter building for the Kamagamisama. And before we started the whole build on the site we purified the site with salt.

best,

wow, great looking Kiln! takes me back to my university days when I took a Kiln building class.

When do you break it in? will the students have to build/throw work throughout the semester or is this the accumulation of the course they were involved in?

See you all when I get back.
