It's Not Just Us...

...who wreck salt kilns; this is what the Tel Hai salt kiln looked like after the last firing - the back wall has been eaten by the salt,resulting in a nicely salted chimney but not too much on the pots. It's fixable,but I suspect this kiln is also on it's way out. It was cast using a home-made refractory castable recipe,so didn't cost too much to build: I wonder how much longer it would have lasted if it had been built from hard brick and/or given a coat of salt-resisting slip inside.
