A milestone at Cohen Tiles

I built this kiln in 1973. A catenary arch, soft brick, car kiln. 100 cu. ft. (75 stacking.)

On may 15th 2009, it was fired for the thirteenth hundred time. Over the 33 years there have been about 75% cone 9 firings. Pots for the first 22 years. Tiles for the last eleven. The shelves stay up and we push the tiles in. A technique I learned from David Gill who created Bennington Pottery in Vermont.
