1-2-3 or lock and load baby-lock and load!

It was a long day over here in Whynot getting the last of the pots glazed and then loading the kiln.
No matter how we do it loading takes about 5 hours and after the week we had last week that was a long 5 hours.
We had the back in right after lunch and then took a break about 2:30-3.
Then had the next two stacks in by 6 pm.
We took another break and then went back about 7.
Done.... Mark is firing now.
It seems a good day to fire ever though the heat is going back up the winds are to be calm.
We can deal with the heat since we do have A/C in the building.

Backstack

middle stack

and thank goodness...front stack...
Next up- clean up and get ready to do it all again.
Cheers,
M

We love the Advancer shelves and wish for more.
They are real back savers.
