Well...the kilns 3/4 loaded. We're heading off to the Dallas area in the morning and we'll be back on Saturday so I'll have to finish loading then. The firing is set for next Wednesday...hopefully(it was supposed to be today!) I'm not sure why but I haven't been able to fire on the scheduled dates with this kiln, there's always been a delay. Oh well, unloading the day before the home sale is no big deal, right? I have more than enough pots without it, in fact most of these will just go into storage. I'm trying to get ahead with my inventory, I'd like to not have to pack up my showroom every time I head off to a show.
This firing is a bit of a gamble, I'm not getting my hopes too high and I'm expecting some losses. I'm sure it will fire out just fine but I've never fired with all glazed work so I'm not sure how the flame/ash is going to interact with the work. That can be both good and bad. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I have a ceramics 1 students who has been complaining for awhile about his tools that went missing. Turns out he put them inside one of his slab pots(why???) and I bisque fired them. Ha!
Happy thanksgiving to all my American friends and happy Nov. 26th to everyone else.
