Today, sometime in July 2017 we went get the seasoned wood for the wood fired kiln that Tony has built in his biggest of sheds .
This is the culmination of five years planning, finding, buying and building.
First the clippings from our hedge rows were burnt and the ash soaked . Then the massive Nissan hut was purchased from our chum Andy Hazell and brought up to the farm in sections.
Later after winning the top cash prize at the portrait Sculptors annual competition in 2013 , Tony bought a brick kiln from a retired Potter near Newtown.
Later still Tony, his cousin Nigel and his brother Pat put up the huge Nissan hut and then finally this year Tony re built the kiln.
