Ceylon Forge Progress
Well I’m not ready to move any equipment in yet but there has been a lot of progress on the building over the past year. Here are the highlights:
The Frame is all up and all brackets/braces are installed.
To preserve the frame, I coated the exterior with Pine Tar from Sage Restoration.
The Roof Deck is all on and waiting for the waterproofing.
And most recently, the cordwood infill has been started!
Foundations are in!
New shop foundations are in at 400083 grey rd 4, Ceylon. Hopefully I will be moving equipment in next summer!

Come and learn glassblowing with Kate Civiero at Infinite Glassworks in Eugenia. Stretch, twist, blow and shape colourful molten glass to create an orb which will be the top of your garden ornament.
