    • Roof brackets & kiln cart made by Nils Lou, plus his instructions for building & firing the kiln, layer by layer. (And, If I can find them, layer by layer photographs.)

    A VERY clean burning gas kiln, during heavy reduction, you can see to the back wall. There was never detectible smoke from the stack, fires with propane natural gas. It all comes apart so you can make it taller to fit your needs. It is easy to load, you can see what you’re doing on all 4 sides, load/unload without stressing you back!

    Why am I selling it?  It’s just too big for me now at almost 75.

    • Wheeled kiln cart rolls into studio on two 10 ½’ lengths of steel brackets that attach to the+ two 9’ lengths secured to floor.
    • Two burners, with safety system, thermocouples, squirrel cage blower, (lengths of 2” gas lines available)
    •  New double walled, fiber-lined stainless-steel stack, with hard brick stack & damper system.
    • All the shelves listed above. Hard brick posts.
    • I still have 2x4 supports for the roof construction and a huge right-angle device to true up the sides when building to keep it square.

    Folks, I need a studio. That is to say, I need a space where I can work with wet clay, to produce my pottery forms, in quantity, and carry the process to completion. I need access to existing kilns, or be able to install my own electric kilns. I am currently in Portland, but as far as location is concerned, all possibilities considered. For questions or with information contact me here...rabunthompson@gmail.com

    Many thanks.

    At Hoffman Center for the Arts

    Manzanita, Oregon

    For the month of March we are featuring ceramics of Mary Roberts. 

    Mary is interested in elegant and modern forms with a feeling of volume. She seeks tension between perfection in the forms with imperfection in surface through carving, texturing, etching, drawing, or applying slip to a refined shape.

    This balancing act seems like a metaphor for just about everything. The search for perfection or ideal and then the beauty that comes from messiness and imperfection. 

    Mary is a local potter and volunteer with the Hoffman Center for the Arts.  

    This exhibit opens this Friday March 4 and continues every Friday through Sunday, 1-5pm, until March 27. Hoffman Center for the Arts

    594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita, Oregon

    The gallery is free and open to the public.

    The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita Oregon is very pleased to feature OPA member Serafine Lilien through the month of September. The Gallery is open 1-5 Thursdays through Sundays until September 26 at 594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita Oregon. 


    Serafine works in clay to create whimsical yet realistic sculptures of dogs and cats. She captures the character of the animals and sees and creates their love and sensitivity in the gestures and poses of her pieces. Her art background is classic from studying and sculpting the figure at the National Academy of Design in NY and Artida Arts Inc. in Italy. She has an undergraduate degree in Medical Illustration, hence her realism style.

    Also note- the gallery is accepting applications for shows in 2022 through Oct. 15 for artists with a connection to the Oregon Coast. We encourage those interested to read through the application information. Check it out here! https://hoffmanarts.org/submissions-and-proposals/
