    Any photos of the work, would love to see them, You said the glaze will eventually need to be repaired or replaced. We have lots of old glazed jugs. (with the blue decoration) and the glaze all seems to be in great condition. Could you elaborate on this. How come the glaze has not deteriorated on these old jugs? Should we expect it to? Sometimes we find great ones that are damaged.(chips) can these be repaired / restored?

    I think AP was talking about the brickwork in the kiln, not the product. Rick

    AP, good and interesting sideline, but far from the OP. I'd like to relocate the pottery specific info to a new thread if that is ok with you.

    Maybe a whole new room for the potters? Maybe title it something like Pyros and Potters, and what they have in common?
