It did yesterday was a a balmy 54 degrees with low winds. A good day to fire the kiln
Mark was up and out to light the kiln in the wee hours of the morning. He usually does the gas firing. There was a point in our pottery relationship where we decided it was better for one person who knew the kiln best to do the firing.
With the new smaller kiln I hope to go back to taking care of some of the gas fires myself.
And one of the burners Mark made back in the day. He has replaced the fans once in the 24 years of the life of the kiln, I asked him how to set the air one time and he said he does it by sound. This was where I figured since I could not wear his ears it would be best for him to fire.
Cool down day one today and lot's of things to get done.
I will be loading a kiln with tiles to fire tomorrow .
And the word today is wintery mix.
Just rolls off the tongue.
