Once the carving of the base is finished the piece needs to be disassembled for firing. In order to ensure that it can be reassembled correctly I make a series of marks on the inside as an initial guide.
Before firing each brick needs to be frogged.
The bricks are individually numbered 1 - 160 to ensure they can be reassembled correctly. Bricks all packed and ready to return to the brickworks for firing.
