    Truly Awesome David! I think Gaudi would really be honored to have been chosen as the inspiration for your "kiln temple aka intergalactic explorer". I think it gives us all a fresh look at what a humble kiln or WFO has at its heart...graceful art that showcases the pleasure we all experience with our ovens! Thank you for this thread.

      Thanks for the accolades Mike. I'm a firm believer in form following function and feel satisfied that in this case it's worked out.

            G'day Davids
            Great to see the finished product. Love the bell. And love the gothic structure, none to common in nth QLD.
            regards Dave

              I've finally built a workbench to fit the shape and moved most of my outside stuff under cover.

                David,

                Very unique structure. Reminds me of Gaudi buildings in Barcelona, Spain. I guess if is your hot summer time right now in Townsville, Queensland. Is the kiln working well?

                  Yes Russell it was inspired by our visit to Barcelona in 2015. Learnt about Gaudi in art school but had never seen any of his buildings in the flesh. I've always been a big Art Nouveau fan.
                  Townsville is stinking hot and very humid now. We turn on the aircon at 8 am. Outside work needs to be done between 5-7 am or 5-7 pm. With temps in low 30's C combined with 90% humidity, it's quite oppressive. Kiln is working well.
