Kilns and tiles

A really old beehive style kiln built into a mountain. 
From the inside looking up.
A dragon kiln we saw on the way to Mt. Goalin.  They only made roof tiles.  

A roof tile worker.  One of my favorite pictures.
Once these tubes are made they are broken into quarters and stacked onto roofs.  The mold the clay is wrapped around has four little ridges in it going from top to bottom so they can be broken in the right place easily.
