The Brick Baron


About a month ago, Robin caught wind of a brick source out of Edmonton, which with initial investigation seemed a bit of a logistical nightmare. But that nightmare turned out to be one heck of an opportunity for the right potter and we are now the rightful owners of more than 180,000 pounds of high temperature fire brick and refractory!!! Sounds exciting doesn't it?!?

The most exciting part was actually having the brick delivered this past Wednesday and watching our very skilled neighbour unload 60 pallets of heavy brick with his loader off of two double semi-trailer tractors.

Next up....I think Robin mentioned something about building a kiln.
