Linda brought her years of experience and expertise. Linda's pottery is located in Lindstrom, Minnesota. Here she is firing her own kiln.

In June a group of us had Linda Christianson come to wood-fire with us!
We build this kiln "Beaulah-dene" at Barb Murphy's farm in 2006
and she fires like a beauty. Catenary arch with firebox enclosed.

Here she is loading the kiln: we learned so much from Linda as she talked about all the ins and outs and rationale for putting pots in certain places
- it was all good.
Celia Brandao, Heather Daymond and Terry Osborne are on shift in the early stages of the firing.

GT - good times!
Cathi Jefferson, Linda Christianson, Barb Murphy
and Kim Harcourt. Kim, what happened, one leg is shorter?

GT - more good times!

GF - good food!

Over the years I have found that generally speaking, potters love to garden, cook, eat (and drink)!

Our pot luck dinners at wood-firings are exceptional in this regard.
