Crucible - Changing the Pot
The furnace is off as we change the crucible, ready for the year ahead making glass. The pot corrodes over time and develops holes or cracks, which can, eventually go through and create all kinds of havoc for a glassmaker. This pot has been in the furnace since summer 2017 and is ready to come out. Hope to have the furnace relit next week and have the beating heart of the building return to warm this stone building through.
