The first site is simple and includes several tools that I thought were interesting. Since we work within a certain range of tools within the studio, it is eye-opening to see the incredible range of tools and the forms that can be achieved with such equipment.
Also, within this site, the side links include Manabigama Kiln, which I was curious to learn more about. This link is helpful in terms of understanding the benefits of this kiln as a small-scale, rather easily operated unit, ideal for studios, etc. In addition, the construction process is discussed.
