This blog about my husband, Euan Craig, who is an Australian potter in Japan; about his works, making process, our life style and our family.

The Kiln foundation is started !!

I wanted to write about fixing our house with friends,
but I have news to tell you first.....

The foundation work for the kiln, which was scheduled to start at the end of last year but was delayed by snow, started on January 11th!

We seemed to have waited for a long time.
A very long time....
Learning the lessons of the earthquake,
the foundations this time are designed to support the seven tonne weight of the kiln,
and brace the kiln with an iron frame as before.
Euan has changed the kiln design to be more earthquake resistant.
(I'll tell you more about that when he starts construction!)
There was much lost in the earthquake, but we also learned a great deal and had the heart warming support of many people.

The courage to move forward, the strength to continue.

To all of you, our heartfelt thanks.
Putting the family's safety and welfare first, Euan can now finally start to concentrate on his real job, being a potter.

You can see Euan overflowing with joy♪

Congratulations, Euan.
And always, thank you.
He has a group exhibition scheduled for late February, and must make new work before then, fitting the kiln building in the schedule as well.

I am worried about when he can build the kiln, but if necessary he can pobably borrow the "Euan" kiln at the Mashiko Tougei Club.

Whatever happens, we will move forward, one step at a time.
