A big day ahead! Unloading the kiln will be on top of the list. Also that list will include,
- paint signs
- clean up around the kiln
- clean show room
- post preview pics on this page
Here are some of the faces of the firing of the kiln. Can't thank these folks enough!
and help me innovate a new salting technique!
Keith's son Greyson after retrieving the
salt board from the middle of the pond!
and hamming it up for the camera.
The firing started at about 3:30 a.m. and ended about 9 the following night. The temperature was a little hotter than last firing by design. The majority of the load was made from a commercial stoneware and not my red dirt stoneware.
Tomorrow is Lillian's birthday and we're heading in top the big city of Asheville. I'll be pressing the overalls so's I'll be able to celebrate in style!
Until the next chance I get to sit down and compose...thanks for reading and supporting blogs about pottery!
Just wanted to send a great big shout out to everyone who made this firing possible. "All nighter" David Andrews and his son Eli, Tom "apple fritter" Turner, Alex "Coneman the Barbarian" Matisse, Connie, Kyle "glaze holiday" Carpenter, Dr. Doc Welty, and Keith "Mudstuffing"and Greyson "the retriever" Phillips.
Thank you ALL!
Last but not least, Evelyn, Lillian, and of course my ever patient and understanding wife, Stacey Lane.
I'll try to bring it all together in a wrap up Monday after I geta good nights sleep!
