Unloading the kiln
Judson and I unloaded the kiln this morning he has never helped before he really got in to it, like all kids he was fascinated buy the cone packs. He was a big help though It was fun, when I rolled the door open he said "ooh pretty pottery daddy!!" and he was right the kiln fired nicely, I only put a few pieces of shino in with slip trailing afraid that they may not come out but they looked great! The other ash glazes flowed nicely and I only lost a few pots I need to adjust the bag wall a little and work on the door seal something is not lining up just right but I think the kiln is a success. I'll be working on glazing a an order for a galley and some dinnerware that a nice lady has been waiting way too long for but I was afraid to put it in the first firing of the rebuilt kiln so I will get it finished this week.
