This 1950s building houses the laundry, a garage,a shop for farm implements and the Abbey Pottery in a second floor studio.
This building also houses a garage which includes
shop facilities for the simple maintenance of our
fleet of cars
South of the garage and directly below the
pottery studio, the Abbey Laundry occupies a
prime space where Br. Herman serves the needs
of the monastic community.
Started by Fr. Basil, the pottery studio is still in use
producing many beautiful crafts.
Much of Br. Llewellyn’s pottery is on display
throughout the monastery.
A typical firing load from the Abbey Pottery's 45 cu. ft., gas-down/draught kiln. The handbuilt and wheelthrown stoneware and porcelains are fired to a cone 9-10 or around 2,300 degrees (F). The kiln was built in 1988 by Jasper Bond of Sauk Rapids, Minnesota.
