Last week I and a number of volunteers and UP staff prepared for, and poured a small concrete slab in the parking lot behind the Union Project along Samantha Way. All this was done in preparation for a second gas kiln which was generously donated to the Union Project by the Manchester Craftsman's Guild this winter.

Here at Union Project, our ceramic artists are busy exploring all sorts of different glazing and firing techniques. Just this past weekend Ceramics Cooperative members Sarah and Keith spent time working to master one of the funnier sounding firing techniques, Raku firing.
