Hi Diane,

My wife and I are going to build a studio this summer if all goes as planned.

We are researching the ideas and will be taking workshops on strawbale construction.

Then we plan to hold workshops. Building the studio and several kilns (salt, woodfired, raku and pit).

I tried to get two post up on clayart but they have not come through. I hope they will post them they are more detail.

If your close to Helena, Montana you could come and learn and share with us. I know my learning curve is way up on studying these structure. We have printed about 2 books worth of info off the net.

If you want to discuss this more I have free long distance cell service if you want to leave your number in an email.

We may use some local clays for the plastering inside and possibly out?

Hope you reply!

Les and Donna Elford
