Trying something new
I know that most folks think we play at clay. There are a lot of myths around art as work and work as art.
We decided that in this kiln load we would load plates and platters at the top of the kiln. This is something we have been playing with as we see a slow down to the larger items we have been using to fill the top shelves in the kiln.
There is no reason that it should not work. What could possibly go wrong? (laughter here)
It took us a bit longer to load and figure this out. We were out there sweating and swearing a bit Saturday and Sunday. It's all good.
The kiln is in, the fire going, Mark is ever present as the kiln is turned up. Fire today, cool down Tuesday and Wednesday, unload Thursday.
I am heading to school for the final day of summer semester.
Boy, did that 8 weeks fly past me.
I have a few weeks to get ready for the fall.
I have kilns that need attention, clay to ready and summer camp.
Pictures of the fired pottery coming up.
Please watch this space.
Stay cool if it is hot where you are,and,warm if it is cold.
