Thank you to all the folks who posted advice about buying a new kiln.
We have made the decision to buy a new kiln this year, just not right away.
We put it on the high priority list of things that need to happen.
Mark did tighten up some connections on the kiln and it just worked like a charm today.
In fact we had to hold it back it was going too fast.
But an 8- 10 hour bisque is better than the 18 hour one.
We were cooking today.
Good thing since we are hearing news about more weather coming our direction.
This week has been a lot of start and go, interruptions to our flow.
I always get up on Mondays with my list of goals for the week.
I think this week I will reach a small part of those.
With the bisque chugging along and an unexpected trip to the doctor, that I am happy to report was nothing major, we did get back to turning some pots.
I have mugs made and covered for handles tomorrow.
Plates, one batch trimmed and more made.
Then I started a round of small jars.
Mark has vases in the works and bowls.
Some days the slap of the clay on the wheel head sounds like music to the ears.
