I find the hardest part of firing my kiln is waiting for it to cool. For some reason I generally fire at night, then have to torment myself waiting for the kiln to cool enough to open it. Yesterday I did some work outside, but spent most of my afternoon watching Game of Thrones and the evening watching Argo.....a nail biter even though we knew the ending!
I am, as of now, changing my habits and firing early in the day. Then when it turns off I can wait late afternoon and all night without peeking. Sometimes the small, obvious changes are the hardest to put into practice.
I have only opened a few shelves but so far so good. I finally managed to find space for the dragon and the sea horse. They've been sitting on my shelves for ages saying, "What about us?"
This firing was a little odd as I didn't discover that the bottom switch was off until the kiln had been going for two hours. It's all bisque on the bottom so everything should be fine.
This is a short post as I want to get it onto Mud Colony. Take a look and see what is going on around the world in clay.
We're having a clear, dry, sunny sunday. Nice for hanging laundry out to dry. I have my toes crossed for this weather to continue well into October.
Enjoy the day, and, as always, thanks for stopping by.......*s*
