As they say
In other words there is no way I can take pictures of the inside of the kiln as we loaded it today since the door is all bricked up and the burners are already on. There is fire going on in there.
We are having a bit of freezing cold temperatures this week and when it is this cold we don't like to take any chances on loading the kiln and giving chance that something will freeze and cause us problems when we do fire.
That means, load kiln and light the burners and just stay up all night. Well, to tell the truth Mark is doing the stay up all night while I ...well, I am going to bed and be fresh for work tomorrow.
It is the price one has to pay to get orders out.
So you get some pictures of pots as and before they were loaded in the kiln.
To your right a tall lamp.
With the exception of the sugar jars that did not make the cut, no room for them. These are all in the kiln.
I will get pictures of the pots before we unload the kiln.
Stay warm where you are, or cool if you are Ang who is not having cold but hot where she is, lucky girl.
And ponder these thoughts:
We received a catalog yesterday and in it was an ad for underwear made from "free range" cotton. Yes, you read it here. Free range cotton. Now, people I am from the south and I have never seen cotton raised any other way but in open fields. What makes it free range? This brings so many questions to my mind and makes me wondered if there are farmers out there abusing cotton right now as we sit here. And, if they are what can we do about it? Free the cotton!
My other wonder, and this one has had me for awhile now, is there are eggs being sold as "born free" eggs. Um, come again? last time I was around chickens they were still "laying" eggs.
Are chickens now giving birth to eggs and if so why is this not on youtube?
There is just so much to think about these days, but fear not our pots are lead free, pastured raised , have no hormones, or antibiotics, are not tested on animals, are made in a smoke free and animal free environment, fat free, vegan, organic, hand crafted, and made just for you.
