Kiln Open and ready for the next step

I have finished the jurying for the 2014m Potters Council Show and it is going to be FABULOUS ... the Membership is incredibly talented so it was a pleasure to do this job.



Kiln-Load

So, with that done ... 

I got my first test kiln loaded and fired .... here is an image of the bottom shelf where the newest work was.


I was pleased there was no warping and the forms are self supporting which always saves a lot of work.



I had a few UGLY pots, several so/so and a couple that are heading in the right direction.

Yellow-to-PinkYellow all



It is very early days yet, but I am very pleased with the results.


The second firing will be a low firing to test some other glaze treatments.


I will keep you, my Blog fans, posted.
