As I walked away from the kiln tonight I was thinking how grateful I am to the help I always need to fire the kiln. Alan Gratz helped out all day despite some serious publishing deadlines he's working towards. Alan spends most of time crafting great stories for young adults and has recently published "The Brooklyn Nine".
He really loves to burn wood and has an intuition and focus that is unmatched. Here's to you Alan for all your hard work today!! I (and all of the pots) thank you!
I'm going to review the day and share some pictures tomorrow, but for now it's time to get some sleep. Something that has been a stranger to me lately.
