The kiln has about 25 pots in it and I could have put a lot more work in there but, again, wanted to minimize the risk and take a wait and see before committing more of my pots.
The following are a couple of examples of my visual "note taking". It's a real easy way to keep track of some of the deco-rotation strategies for future reference (I'm much better at visual information). I'll take pictures of the finished pots too, and keep them in a folder on the computer.
I'll unload in the morning, I guess. I have no idea how long it will take to cool. Maybe I'll do a video-unloading! But in the meantime, I'm getting out the home clay and starting a wood kiln cycle for some upcoming spring shows.
