burnin burnin

i finished the wood firing yesterday at about 6:30pm. i peaked in the kiln just before lunch today and it looks ok. not as stellar as the last firing but a perfectly good firing anyways. i'll unload late tonight or first thing in the morning.

i loaded most of the gas kiln on tuesday and arrived this morning to finish loading and start it up. it looked as if the sculpture students were doing a bit of stone carving this week so i had some dusting to do in the kiln. the kilns going now it'll be done later this evening. its all porcelain work and mostly just a large experiment for me so i'm trying not to count on it too much. a lot of the pieces aren't too far from my stoneware forms but i did try some new teapots that are pretty cool.

until later.
