Come see the kiln in action at Renaissance Hall during Studio Crawl next weekend, October 6th-7th!
This is a project that's been about 8 years in the making. It's a giant kiln, a beautiful tool at 2500 degrees in the middle of downtown Fargo. It's built like a fortress by many many hands for creating pottery using ancient methods. Students have been integrally involved in both the construction of the kiln, and the firing.
