Clay for the Castle

Went and found some clay for building a tiny castle.

I pulled it from a pile from excavating the still incomplete upper well housing. Was able to make coils straight out of the pile so I have high hopes for this stuff.

Just started soaking it so I can get the plant matter and small rocks out of it with a screen. Then I get to dry it out a bit, flatten it into nice big slabs and cut tiny, tiny bricks out of it.

Once i have all of my tiny, tiny bricks I get together with Dandan and a few of his books and we do a tiny test oven (horno style), a tiny gatehouse, and tiny wall section to see if any obvious problems pop up.
