- Mark Stevens
The photos below are in the sequence of a clockwise tour of the building, beginning and ending near the main entrance.
Kiln, probably installed by Quality Ceramics for the manufacture of plates.

Another look at the vintage kiln.
Against the wall are the spray booths once used for lamp decorating.
Various mold cases, many still marked with their old "K" model numbers indicated.
Some of these molds are 40 years old.
Richard spots some of the old lamp models.
Some were discovered to be Richard's designs.
Many areas of the plant showed serious neglect.
Carts for moving products.
Some Quality Ceramics items still present.
This room was added after Texans.
The safe that once stored the gold (suspended in a varnish) used to decorate products.
