There are about 6 pots that just did not get hot enough and we will fire those again. (your fired!)
What did we learn from this firing:
We want to move the floor shelf up a few inches so it will be closer to 4- 4 1/2 inches from the floor to the first shelf instead of the 3 inches we have there now. When we were loading we talked about the kiln we had like this one before,back in the early days, and the light blub moment was- didn't we have the first shelf start higher?
I think we did and that is the plan- bring it up and hope for more heat on those bottom pots.
Then the top jumped, the bottom fell behind and there was no coaxing the two to come back together.
The thought was to let the chips fall where they may and when the top hit 10 shut her down.
When it grabs and holds the iron we like to call it Leopard spot.
You can just see a bottle in the back there on the right.
But, I may fire that one again.
The Beer mugs came out great. These are 4 ounces larger than the last ones we (Mark) made and will do 20 ounces with some room to spare. No loss on your beers with these!
Hey, you- yes, you- sexy girl- Oh, not you the pitcher.
This is my kind of iron red and with those tasty drips...... oh, yea!
Are you in?
Off to glaze on some tiles and think about what we are doing for the next load.
