    Working with the Hmawbi Potters
    By - Bruce Gardiner - Project Director
    As I have mentioned in previous reports, it has been a great challenge to me to find clay of sufficient quality to use in my stove building.

    A Stove for Institutions
    By - Bruce gardiner - Project Director
    After trying several prototype institutional-sized stoves using homemade clay bricks and common construction bricks, I decided to build one using stainless steel sheeting as the primary material for the combustion chamber.
