Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar I would have said fence, of the start of a Gazebo . . .

Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar No, not a fence or a gazebo.

And no not a kiln. But the Anagama kiln is finished and will be having it's maiden firing soon. Pics will follow.

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar Are they canes? I wonder if it is a path cover to keep the feet dry?

Re:
Arosebyanyothername's Avatar No, not a path cover - but that could be a good idea. However, it is dry and sunny here at present and fair weather is set to continue.

I have a feeling that stage 3 is not going to happen this week. The girls have moved on to more exciting projects. Ferns have to be woven in and out of the struts - boring!
It may get finished next week but I won't be here to record it.
