Crucible – Changing the Pot

January 13, 2020

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.

Just beautiful. Stunning day. Hope the frost stays away. The sky on the images is as it was, no photoshop, just as the lens saw it and as we know there is a great deal if sky in Yorkshire.
