Here are the pots that made it in. There were also 2 large platters, 2 medium platter/bowls and a dozen taller pieces...all of these pots but 2 made it in the kiln, I think it was 185 pieces in all.
I ran out of room in the barn so I had to keep some outside.
The kiln cleaned out and ready to start loading. I stack the back 2 sets of 12x24's and the 10x20's by the flu first. When those are done I do one more 12x24 stack in the front.
I glue the wads onto all the pieces as I load them. I used to wad them and then carry them out to the kiln but it's about 100 yards and they don't always balance well on boards with the wads already on. The glue keeps them in place in case I want to pick a piece up and move it, otherwise the wads fall off.
How I stack plates. I like to stack the plates high so the weight warps them and gives the rim a little wobble.
