Managed to find some time and started a batch of clay caves. Wanted to make smaller ones for my zebras, and different ones for L134s, etc. Will eventually make some big enough for the L25s. The first batch is being fired in the kiln yesterday. Excited to get finished product back.

Will probably have some available forsale once I sort out the sizes for myself. Probably be around $8-9 each and more for larger ones.

Here a pic of the D-shaped ones. Will be making some round ones for someone soon. Will post pics of those soon.




Cheers,

John

oh..seems to be some interests. If you're interested or have any question, pls email me via - johnkhuu at rogers dot com. Quicker for me to reply. thanks

They look nice and I wouldn't mind trying some that shape too. Can you make any triangular caves like the one on the left side of your second pic?

Rich, Kam - Cool cool. also big big for you guys : )

Hi Charlie, my preference for D-shaped was because most of my tanks are bared bottom. IMO, round caves better suited if you have gravel/sand so it doesn't roll around as much.

Matt, no problem. some of my caves will be that shape.

Np Matt. Will PM you for sizes, etc. I guess for you would most likely be small ones.
