and in a flash!

I don't know how it was at your house yesterday but it hit 101 here.
And even with that heat the flashing was finished up on the kiln.
Looks pretty dog gone hot, does it not!??

We are not the only ones who have plans for this kiln.

We have some friends who are already filling it up!

I worked on some jars using the patterns I  "lifted"  from my night gown.
 I have done them on tiles and pillow pots in the past.
Now I find them coming out on small dishes and jars.
I wonder where they will show up next.
AND! the first set of  tiles for the back splash are through the bisque kiln.
What a load off to have some at this stage- more to go and more to come.
keep cool!

wow your kiln looks really big! And 101 degrees is incredibly hot, its been warm here but not quite that sort of temperature!

what are the friends, I can't tell from the photo? That is a very well done job of flashing and building.

Linda- it seems to be the start of a paper wasp nest. It looks like asmall pot hanging from the arch.

I'm so envious. I'm patiently waiting for construction to start on my kiln. Everybody who knows me is laughing right now becaused of my use of the word, patiently.
