I wasn't blogging six months ago so didn't see these photos before - wow! You should be so proud of yourselves for what you have accomplished in six months -- congrats on all the hard work.

What caused the fire? I think it's always in the back of every potter's mind - a studio fire. . .

6 months seems to be a good time for finishing construction and moving in. Glad you got things back so you can work again.

Those fire shots have me scared, I too wonder how the fire started?
You have really worked quickly, congrats on your new space.

Hi- just to fill you in- it was started by a big bolt of lighting out of the blue- hit a tree, followed a copper pipe to the building, into the wall and then into the electric. We were home or we would have lost all of it.
Not a kiln or the wax pan-
the link below tells about the fire copy and paste.

Thanks for the link - it just proves insurance is so important - cause even when you do everything right (no wax left burning - no kilns left unattended -etc) literally - a bolt from the sky comes out of no where. You guys were fortunate to be home & -- aren't you happy you'll be back in your studio soon!
What a lot of work --- kudos!

Hey, now I remember you saying about the lightening bolt - what a freak of nature. So glad you are going to be moving in soon.
