This week I've been making working at the Logan Clay Products factory in Logan, OH with a group of 11 other artists. This factory makes a clay sewer pipe and flue liners in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. The factory (built in 1890) is really an incredible place to work ….
one of the drying rooms ….
the workers are making more pipes right next to where we are working ….
right now they are only firing the beehive kilns outside, but there is a beautiful old tunnel kiln inside one of the buildings…..
and here I am working on some work. in this photo, I'm sanding the inside of this piece with sandpaper duct taped to the end of a stick. these are ultimately going to be horizontal pieces and after the firing I will continue to work on the surface with stains, sanding, cutting, etc.
stay tuned for more updates….
