Unveiled

Well- it is still a mystery but here you go!


 I went for my walk this morning and when I came home Mark had the door down, pictures taken and pots were almost all pulled. It is a good thing we have that camera!
I like to look back and see how well a pot did in a certain place in the kiln and what the flame pattern tells us.

Over all we are much happier with this firing and need to credit that to new regulators and Mark's ability to wing the heck out of a firing.
We are heading back out to plan another load and fire this kiln again by next week.
Kiln opening weekend on the 21st!
Best get cracking,
M

There are some beauties in there! Love those reds.

That clematis is beautiful!

Looks great!

cookingwithgas said...

Thanks Judy- this clematis has really taken it's time getting established and finally she is putting out some flowers.
Oh, I do love those iron reds!

Oh La La!! Here's a toast to new regulators :)

My clematis is just beginning to shoot out leaves. It's nice to see a reminder of what's to come!

Looks like a good one! Some fine pots there!

Nothing like clematis or other similar flowers for a month or two yet.

Such a beautiful and orderly array of pots that I would not have wanted to unload the kiln!

cookingwithgas said...

Oh- thank you all- feels good to have this load come out so well.
We are working on another one- jumping right back in to see if we can get this kiln to work for us.

Barbara Rogers said...

That's a great kiln unloading...not opening obviously. Congrats!

Lori Buff said...

They look beautiful. Taking pictures before unloading is so smart. You'll also be able to tell if things are changing in the kilns behavior.

Sherry said...

Beautiful pots!! I love how the amber came out! Is the middle of some of those carved?

Becky said...
