Tom Bloyd is on a distinguished road
I saw the same thing in San Diego, Pete. It was so simple and perfect. I think Don Petty from Oceanside Glass and Tile built that one. I moved in to their old studio after they had moved to Carlsbad and before they got really big and moved to Mexico. Don made all sorts of brilliantly simple machines. They would pour a tile and put it on a kiln shelf that sat on a lazy susan. The tile would then travel on a garage door chain(ran by the garage door opener)under a fumer, under a ceiling mounted reducing flame and then on to a lehr. Spinning slowly the whole way. I haven't been to the shop in Mexico, but I am sure it is a little more high tech.
